I’m a proud special needs sibling.
My brother has Down syndrome.
I fight with my brother. I cry with my brother. I tease my brother. I laugh with my brother.
My brother needs both you and me to be patient. Speak clearly and slowly. Allow him time to do things on his own.
He understands more than most realize. Watch out. He’s listening to you. He learning from you.
The biggest thing you need to know about how to treat my brother... be kind. I’m not far behind.
