Elli Van Bree is a fifth-grader with an educational and loving message to share with her school about her brother Willem, who is autistic. Elli wants Willem’s classmates to know how to be a good friend to him over the next four years as they go to school with him. “Sometimes new kids, or loud places, scare him because his eyes and ears are extra sensitive,” Elli explains. “Overall, he’s a kid like you and me. And I hope you love him as much as I do.”
