The most recent study on siblings with autism is very interesting. I could not agree with it more. It's my boys exactly! The study says that siblings with autism are almost always opposite. My boys are opposites! I believe this is why many people have a hard time believing that Andrew has autism. .....he is totally opposite of Trenton.
Andrew's strengths are in communication and social.
Trenton's weakest areas are in communication and social.
Trenton adjust to change fairly well.
Andrew does not adjust well to change.
Trenton's OCD is not nearly as bad as Andrew's.
