Milestones feature: Growing up with a sibling with a disability
Friends, family, and community members want to be there for those they love, at McMan we help them navigate the various ways to do so.
Corrine Grieve is the Transition Coordinator in our Milestones program, she provides supports to families with youth with a disability ages 15-17 to help prepare them for a successful transition to adulthood.
In the video below she discusses her experiences of growing up with a sibling with a disability. Corrine provides great advice and resources for other siblings including Sibshops, a workshop for younger siblings of children with special needs. Sibshops are an opportunity for siblings to come together, talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with a disability and to have fun with a group of peers.
