Sibling - Down Syndrome
A slightly different angle - our eldest Charlotte has Down Syndrome (4) and she has a new sister (3 weeks). Charlotte is non verbal but capable. She is not at all happy with the new addition. All normal for an elder sibling other than that she has become visibly distressed a couple of times as she can't express her emotions as other children could. Any ideas in helping her other than the normal involvement?
