Connecting the Dots

September 15, 2022 @ 2:30 pm 3:30 pm

A PEATC Early Childhood webinar for parents

Supporting Siblings of Children with Disabilities
Being a brother or sister of a family member who has a disability comes with unique challenges and opportunities. As a parent of a child who has a sibling with a disability, you may have questions or concerns about how to talk with your children and help them through their unique journey.

We’re connecting the dots on sibling relationships, ways parents can help siblings feel more supported, and the sibling support movement.

Supporting Early Childhood Friendships
Having friends is personally valuable and developmentally important. We’re connecting the dots on ways we can facilitate and promote social opportunities, interactions, and friendships for our children.
