We have been asked to share this from SIBS – for brothers and sisters of disabled children and adults.

We are looking for adults who have a brother or sister with a learning or developmental disability to take part in our survey study. Learning or developmental disabilities may include Autism, Cerebral palsy, Fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, genetic disorders etc. Your brother or sister may have one of these conditions, or several.

We want to hear about your experiences, wellbeing, your relationship with your brother or sister with a learning or developmental disability, as well as what your support needs are. This research study is a collaboration between the University of Warwick with the UK charity Sibs.

To take part, you need to be 18 years of age or older, have a brother or sister with a learning or developmental disability and reside in the UK.

This research is important because understanding the social, psychological and health outcomes of adult siblings will help us develop relevant support to improve outcomes and relationships between siblings where one has a learning or developmental disability. As this work is collaborative with the UK charity Sibs, this is a great opportunity to have your needs and experiences heard by the only UK charity whose sole purpose is to support siblings of people with disabilities.
