SYNOPSIS

Brothers and sisters have a unique window into each other’s world. When one of the siblings in the family has autism, that window provides a penetrating view into this fascinating and often misunderstood developmental disability.

Through a series of short vignettes narrated by the sibling themselves and depicting life at home, “The Other Child” provides a moving portrait about how growing up with a brother or sister with autism can shape a person–and a family. Clinical and scientific experts from the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, the University of Miami, and other leading disability research institutions provide insightful commentaries about the latest in sibling research.
