JUNE 22-23, 2019

The mission of the Sibling Leadership Network is to provide siblings of individuals with disabilities the information, support, and tools to advocate with their brothers and sisters and to promote the issues important to them and their entire families.

The National SLN Conference provides an opportunity for siblings of people with disabilities from across the nation to connect with each other. Siblings at the conference will share stories and network, hear from national experts on sibling services and supports, learn about new research initiatives, and gain insight on sibling experiences.

Conference participants are primarily adult siblings of people with disabilities. Sibling supporters such as sib-in-laws, parents, professionals, and self-advocates may also be present.
