Sibling Support Network Workshop

No Sibling Left Behind

Facilitated for Cotting School by the Massachusetts Sibling Support Network

Designed for parents of siblings, as well as for professionals

Tuesday, November 17

12 noon-1:15 pm on Zoom

Meeting link:



“Growing up with a brother or sister with a disability, whether the disability is mental or physical, seen or unseen,

is a unique, challenging, and potentially rewarding experience.” https://masiblingsupport.org/


At Cotting, we recognize that understanding and supporting the unique experience of the siblings of our students is an important part of the work of our learning community. Although our yearly sibling groups had to be suspended because of the pandemic last year, we hope this presentation will be another way to turn our attention to this vital topic by:

  1. Addressing the overall sibling experience (what it’s like for siblings to grow up with a brother/sister with a disability)
  2. Providing strategies to support siblings
  3. Exploring current trends in sibling research and the growing sibling movement


Please join us for this opportunity to  “Lunch and Learn” together.
