The sibling relationship is often the longest familial relationship and siblings are likely to be the most constant companions in the lifelong journey of their brothers or sisters with a developmental disability.
As a result, ensuring the long-term wellbeing of a sibling with a disability requires identifying, considering and supporting the changing needs and challenges of a brother or sister over time.
With this in mind, the Sibling Collaborative has prepared a report, Understanding the Sibling Experience, to better understand the typical sibling in relation to their own life, the life of their brother or sister with a developmental disability, and their family as a whole.
Join founding members of the Sibling Collaborative, Helen Ries, Eric Goll and Yona Lunsky as they discuss key findings in their new report, Understanding the Sibling Experience.
