Autism and Sibling Relationships
Sue Loring, RN, Director of HMEA’s Autism Resource Center of Central Massachusetts, will be speaking about the impact on a family of having a child with autism, and in particular, how that affects the siblings. With her experience both as a professional and the mother of a child on the spectrum, Sue brings her expertise and a great sense of humor to her interactions. She will share with us what she has learned in supporting the many people with whom she has worked and also draw from her own family experiences as she helps us to understand how positive relationships can be fostered.
Sue has been deeply involved in the field of autism for more than 25 years and has been facilitating Sibshops for 10 years. She serves on numerous boards including the Advisory Board for CANDI at UMass Medical and the Executive Board of Advocates for Autism of MA, and is a member of the Governor’s Special Commission Relative to Autism. She and her husband Bill have three adult children, including a son with autism.
