Calling All Siblings of Special Needs Kids

The NYS Developmental Disabilities Planning Council is sponsoring a survey for the adult brothers and sisters of people with developmental disabilities. In recent years, a focus has been placed on the impact of a disabled child on the family dynamics with particular interest in the brothers and sisters. This particular survey will address the needs of adult siblings but more and more programs are available for younger siblings in the Capital District.

Survey researchers: Nancy Hinkley and Sarah von Schrader, Cornell University.
