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.
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.
