What’s the best way to support siblings of kids with disabilities?
Spend a few immersive minutes each day with your neurotypical kid(s) in a way that makes clear you’re “not always running off to attend to the highest-needs member of the family.”
Talk to your kids about disability: read books about it and involve them in what you know, how you feel, and the work you do together as a family.
If your child is old enough, find a Sibshops support group in your area.
Nurture sibling relationships by creating a family routine that is built around a shared love or activity.
