any advice on how to help a sibling of an autistic child overcome the yuck at home?

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

My daughter has recently been diagnosed with a LD and ADD - she's bright and full of life. Her older brother is autistic... always the center of attention and causes uproar and drama 24/7. She's fed up and is getting depressed. Her younger sister is learning to fight back with her fists and bad language... which in turn causes emotional upsets and in-fighting. My daughter is a strong child - she knows her own strength knows she could out-wit and out-fight any child when required. Her inner character though, won't allow her to do this unless pushed. And she is pushed... causing further distress. Any suggestions on how to calm and placate this one?
