ECLC of New Jersey Chatham School

The role of a sibling in the life of their brother or sister with an intellectual and developmental disability (I/DD) is as complex as it is meaningful. As siblings grow, their relationship and role with their brother or sister do as well. At all ages, siblings need information, peer support, and an opportunity to discuss the future. This presentation will discuss the sibling experience, common feelings, and how to best support and address the unique needs of siblings.
