“These learning modules were brilliant! As a mum of a child with disability and two other children, I could relate to so many aspects of the stories and scenarios. It has given me knowledge and practical strategies that I can implement straight away to support my children. Well done, Siblings Australia! I have been searching for a resource like this – I am excited that these modules will help other families like ours.”
