Siblings of Children with Disabilities

Parent and Educator Presentation

Siblings often have the longest relationship of their lives with their brother or sister. If you have a child with disabilities and a typically developing child, you may wonder about your typically developing child’s experience as a sibling.  Siblings are in a unique position to advocate with their brothers and sisters with disabilities lifelong, so information and support at an early age are important.

Please join us for a presentation about siblings of children with disabilities with Amy Halm, Associate Director of the Sibling Leadership Network. Amy will discuss the needs, concerns, and opportunities that are frequently experienced by siblings of people with disabilities, and how Sibshops and other practical strategies can support them. 

This session is free and parents are encouraged to join us to learn,

listen, and ask questions. Teachers and school staff are also welcome to attend.

 

Please register here for the Zoom on Monday, May 16 at 8pm
