Employment is one of the highest impact ways that the dynamic changes for all of us. Increasing employment for people with disabilities has long been a target by self-advocates, families, and professionals in the field. Employment is good for people with disabilities, but it can also have a impact on sibling relationships. Employment isn’t just good for people with disabilities, it is good for their siblings as well, allowing more opportunities for the give and take relationships we expect from our sibling relationships.
Over the following weeks, in honor of National Siblings Day on April 10, we are rolling out a series of PSAs entitled “Siblings Rule” to motivate siblings to make a meaningful difference to people with disabilities.
