My Sibling Dolls are Dolls with a Special Message. Each 18 inch My Sibling Doll comes with a booklet that contains a story, told from the perspective of a typical child, about what life might be like when a child has a brother or sister with a disability; and also provides educational information about that disability. The stories are written by Loretta Boronat, who knows about these disabilities from personal (has an adult son who has autism) as well as professional experience (special education teacher and advocate). She has based all the stories on real people and their everyday ups and downs of living with a loved one who has either autism or Down Syndrome.
The booklets, clothing and some accessories for My Sibling Dolls are made in the USA. My Sibling Dolls are outfitted and packaged by adults with disabilities at a local sheltered workshop in Montclair, NJ.
