One of the best parts of having a sibling is being there for each other. This includes playing with each other. This can become a problem when the other sibling is disabled or has special needs. Your normal developing child might have trouble connecting or interacting with your other child. It can be painful to watch at times when there is a connection problem between the siblings. This could be a good teaching moment for your normal developing child. You can show them how to interact or play with each other. It can help them bond together. There maybe times when your normal developing child might not want to play with their sibling. However, it can be a magical moment for them both when they know how to and be able to reach out to each other.
