Autism's Impact, Good and Bad, on Siblings

Ranit Mishori is a family physician and faculty member in the Department of Family Medicine at Georgetown University School of Medicine.

Ranit, top, and her brother Dror.
One of the least fun moments I recall from my years of growing up with an autistic brother was when he bit me on the cheek — just in time for my class photo. I was 12 and he was 11. I went into school with visible bite marks, and when they sat me in the chair for my solo shot, I told them that the cat had done it.
That’s one of the bad stories. As for a good one . . . um, to be honest, I have a hard time coming up with much.
