The Connecticut Sibling Network believes that sibling lives and opinions are important and recognizes that siblings are the family members who will have the longest relationships with individuals with disabilities. While there are many positive aspects of having a disabled brother or sister, we respect that it can be a difficult journey for a sibling with unique challenges. Siblings deserve opportunities for support and understanding, as well as information and tools to advocate for their interests and the needs of their brothers and sisters with disabilities.
