As parents of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities age, siblings may become the main caregivers. In this webinar, Dr. Meghan Burke will lay the framework and discuss research about sibling caregiving roles and Dr. John Kramer will share research on how siblings, both with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), age together. Katie Arnold from the Sibling Leadership Network (SLN) will provide more information on the SLN.
