The Autism NOW Center on August 9 will hold its second in a series of webinars for siblings of people with disabilities.

Recognizing that brothers and sisters of children and adults with disabilities face unique lifelong challenges, Autism NOW planned two sibling-focused events this summer as part its weekly webinar intended to support families.

At the August 9 event, a panel of siblings will discuss their experiences and hopes for the future.

The first webinar, held August 2, introduced the Sibling Support Project, a national nonprofit dedicated to the lifelong concerns of brothers and sisters of Americans with disabilities.

Reservations are recommended as space is limited.

The Autism NOW Center is funded by the Administration on Developmental Disabilities and a national initiative of The Arc. The Center hosts free webinars every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (EST). Designed for self-advocates, families, professionals, and the general public, these webinars encompass a wide variety of topics and practices in the area of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and developmental disabilities.
