2021 Virtual Parent Conference Day 1 – 4/6/2021
12:00pm: Emily Holl – Siblings: Concerns, Opportunities, and Effective Support Strategies for Parents and Providers
Throughout their lives, siblings share many of the same concerns as parents of children with disabilities, as well as issues that are uniquely theirs. Siblings typically experience these issues for longer than any other family member, as the sibling relationship can easily exceed 65 years. Because of the important role siblings play in the lives of their brothers and sisters with special needs and families, siblings and their concerns deserve our consideration. Supporting siblings can contribute to lasting positive outcomes for children with disabilities and their entire families. Join us to explore siblings’ concerns, opportunities, and effective support strategies for parents and providers.
2:00pm: Emily Holl – Sibling Stories: A Panel of Adult Siblings Reflect on Growing Up with a Brother/Sister with Special Needs
The most powerful way to learn about sibling experiences is to hear directly from the true experts: siblings, themselves! A follow-up to the sibling overview session presented earlier in the day, this engaging discussion will present the insights and perspectives of adult siblings and shed light on how we can better understand and support the sibs in our lives.
