Story about sibling with autism is featured on Disney Channel

The Disney Channel is regularly airing a two-minute segment called, "The Time I Realized My Brother was Different," featuring one child's experiences with a sibling who has autism. The segment is based on a book by Michigan 13-year-old Melody Igafo-Te'o, who wrote about life with her older brother, Michael, who is autistic. "Some people just think autism is a weird problem," Melody said. "... I hope that they won't think that as much -- that it's like having a regular sibling and just a little different." (Michigan)
