CHAT-N-CHEW – LIFECOURSE FRAMEWORK

January 23 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Being the sibling of a person with an intellectual and developmental disability (I/DD) is as complex as it is inspiring. The Arc understands the unique relationship you have with your brother or sister. You have been involved in their life as an advocate and as a friend; you may have even assumed full responsibility for their care.

Many of us at The Arc know firsthand what it is like to grow up with a family member with I/DD.  We understand and share the vision you have for a full and independent life for your sibling.  The Arc is led by parents, siblings and other family members of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and by people with I/DD themselves. We actively involve them as well as their caregivers.

The Arc brings together people with disabilities, their families, dedicated professionals and others to create hope, growth and positive change. We strengthen relationships between people with disabilities, their parents, family members, and others by connecting them across our national network of 730 community-based chapters. No other organization serving people with I/DD comes close to the breadth and depth of The Arc’s reach into local communities.

Through organizations like The Arc, your sibling can receive supports and services that they needs to become a valued, contributing member of their community, and we give you access to the resources you need to help them achieve their life’s goals. We are committed to the full inclusion of people with I/DD in all aspects of community life throughout their lifetimes.
