If you are unable to attend, you can still register and we’ll send you a link to the recording of the workshop which you can watch on your own time.
Join us for a panel discussion with parents and adult siblings about their experiences discussing disability, challenges, benefits, and everything in between! Emily Holl, Director of the Sibling Support Project, will provide tips for sharing key information at different stages of life with young siblings, teens, and adults to create positive outcomes for the entire family.
