There is a special relationship between individuals with AS and their siblings. It can be loving and carefree, and at other times frustrating and overwhelming. Siblings are the future caretakers of their siblings and it’s a very important role that requires support and lots of planning.
On this page you will find opportunities offered by the ASF for siblings to connect, share experiences, get information and honor their sibling with AS.
