Family Support Research: What You Told Us to Study and What we are Learning about Siblings
Tuesday, September 1, 2015
3:30 pm―4:30 pm Eastern Time
Families supporting children and adults with a wide range of disabilities provide emotional support, help people around the house and in daily activities, coordinate services, and figure out logistical needs. However, family members often do not have the resources and support they need. In the initial Family Support Research and Training Center Webinar, we asked for your input on The Family Support: Tell Us What We Need to Know (FS-Need to Know) Project. Professors Sandy Magaña and Brian Grossman will discuss the results of the FS-Need to Know project and the research topics you and other stakeholders want the Family Support Research and Training Center to focus on.
Siblings play an important role in family support. Katie Arnold, Executive Director of the Sibling Leadership Network and Director of Community Education at the Institute on Disability and Human Development, will discuss the preliminary findings from the National Survey about Siblings of Individuals with Disabilities, their Support Needs, and their Families.
