"Another good book." I think this is a great book for Awareness Day. Personally I would suggest "That Went Well…" by Terrell Dougan. A book not just for brothers and sisters of people with special needs, but a book for everyone of every age. The most honest memoir I've read in a long time. Should be a guide for folks who hand out well-meant advice to parents of kids with special needs.
