Siblings of people with disabilities are important and there is an exciting initiative in Pennsylvania focused on siblings. The Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council (PADDC) has funded the Siblings Investigation project being led by the Sibling Leadership Network (SLN) in partnership with the Pennsylvania Sibling Support Network (PSSN) as well as the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University. We created a resource for siblings of people with disabilities in PA that is attached. Please share this with your networks.
You can share the resource for siblings of people with disabilities in PA in the following ways:
- Email the resource to your networks, especially families of people with disabilities that include siblings
- Add the resource to your website for people to access it easily
- Include information about the resource in your newsletter
- Give copies of the resource to people in your network to give out to families at meetings and events
