Siblings of people with special developmental, health and mental health concerns have important stories to share. Yet, often siblings are overshadowed at home and overlooked by service providers. Black, indigenous, and people of color who have brothers and sisters with disabilities experience additional challenges because of structural, systemic and individual racism.
This very special moderated roundtable will feature adult siblings of people with disabilities form the BIPOC community who will share their experiences, insights and perspectives on life as a sibling of color. This includes an open Q &A.
There is no cost for this event, but space is limited.

The Sibling Support ProjectFounded in 1990, the Sibling Support Project is the first national program dedicated to the life-long and ever-changing concerns of millions of brothers and sisters of people with special health, developmental, and mental health concerns. We are proud to be a program of Kindering, an award-winning organization that embraces children of diverse abilities and their families by providing the finest education and therapies to nurture hope, courage and the skills to soar. We’ve published books for and about brothers and sisters, host online groups for teen and adult siblings, and presented workshops on sibling issues internationally and in every state. We are best known for helping local communities start Sibshops—lively peer support groups for school-age brothers and sisters of kids with special needs.
