Growing up with Siblings with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities – a Panel Discussion”

October 14, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

“Growing up with Siblings with Intellectual / Developmental Disabilities – a Panel Discussion” Families of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have unique experiences. We often hear about these experiences from the parent perspective while the unique experiences of neurotypical siblings in these families are overlooked. Join us for a panel of siblings to learn from their point of view. This diverse panel of siblings will teach us about their experience as a sibling of an individual with I/DD — their challenges, strengths, relationships, attitudes, and how they might have a different perspective than others. Join Moderator, Jean Mankowski, PhD, and a panel of siblings for this discussion online! With: Sarah Palmer, Whitney Griffin, PhD, Zakiya Morris, Brook Galesic, and Zion Gardner
