No Sibling Left Behind
Panel presentation by members of the board of the Massachusetts Sibling Support Network to discuss the role of siblings in the lives of children, adolescents, and adults with disabilities. Topics include what it's like for siblings to grow up with a brother or sister with a disability, strategies to support siblings, current trends in sibling research, and the growing sibling movement.
This presentation is especially useful for parents, siblings, educators, health care and other professionals, and students training for fields where they will work with individuals with disabilities.
