Happy National Siblings Day! 

On April 10th we join the Sibling Leadership Network to celebrate and support the important and unique role that siblings of individuals with disabilities have! National Siblings Day is also a day designated to celebrate the sibling relationship and reflect on the experience of having brothers and sisters in our lives.

Brothers and sisters of people with disabilities often have the longest relationships of their lives with each other. Siblings often become the next generation of caregivers when parents are unable to provide care. Even though siblings have unique roles and are likely future caregivers, the needs and perspectives of siblings are often overlooked. By addressing the needs of siblings, their brothers and sisters with disabilities will have better outcomes. The Sibling Leadership Network provides information and support to siblings of people with disabilities across the lifespan.
