Author Debbie Roppoloabout this book: When a child within a family has a disability, the focus is on the parents, what emotional support they can receive for themselves, and what services can be gathered for the disabled child.

Siblings feel that they are often left the "dust', so to speak. They are loved just as much as they have always been, but they don't receive the attention they crave and deserve. They feel abandoned, and resent the whole situation even further when they are forced to move from everything familiar, like my main character Jonathan.

'He's My Brother' is told from the viewpoint of a sibling, and is based on a conversation with my older son, the brother of a special young man who has autism. It's with this story I hope to supply siblings of a special need child the realization that they are not forgotten. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects 1 in 68 children, and it is my goal to educate the reader about the symptoms and provide resources in addition to offering support.
