An emotional and a poignant interview with three of BY YOUR SIDE’s ABA therapists, each who have a younger brother with autism. Alex, Lizzie, and Natalija give their insights to being in a profession that hits close to home.

 In this episode we discuss:
  • How having a brother on the spectrum helps in becoming a better sister and a therapist
  • Differences the therapists noticed while growing up in the family and how they dealt with different situations
  • Strategies their parents and they used to cope up with various social gatherings such as stores and churches etc.
  • The idea of “growing up” sooner than others while having a sibling on the autism spectrum
  • How having an individual on the spectrum has brought their families close together
