Welcome to the parent page! Thank you for taking the time to visit. We understand that disability impacts the whole family, and that this includes siblings. 

We also recognise that siblings of children with disability are likely to have a mix of feelings and experiences, but may not always have the understanding and emotional skills to manage the complexities. Support can make all the difference.

If you are able to communicate as a family and support each other, you will be more able to manage the challenges together. We understand you are juggling a lot of responsibilities and there is probably much you are already doing to support siblings. It is hoped that the information, services and resources in this section will give you some new ideas.
