Future Planning With Adult Siblings In Mind

Tuesday, February 6 at 7 pm. 


When considering the future for a child with a disability, many parents feel conflicted when thinking about the roles their other children may play. Parents who encourage the siblings to live their own full lives may be hesitant to share their future plans. But many siblings want to be involved in the planning process particularly if, by default, they may take on more responsibility
later in life. 

Avoiding conversations on plans for the future is never a good idea.

In this webcast we’ll discuss how parents and siblings can come together to begin the ongoing conversations of planning for a family member with a disability.
