2014 ForeWord Reviews' INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards
Finalist: Family & Relationships category

If you're a teenaged or adult brother or sister of someone with a disability, then this book is expressly for you. It offers a sense that you're not alone, tips on how to talk to your parents about plans for your sibling, and a crash course in guardianship, medical & legal issues, and government benefits if you're already caring for your sib.

Edited by experts in the field of disabilities and sibling relationships, The Sibling Survival Guide focuses on the topmost concerns identified in a survey of hundreds of siblings. The chapter authors—experienced siblings and service providers—offer practical information and anecdotes about:

  • statistics & research about siblings
  • younger siblings' feelings
  • impact on your life decisions
  • caring for multiple generations
  • aging and disability
  • taking care of yourself
  • getting services & advocacy
  • future planning
Parents, counselors, and disability service agencies will also want a copy of this useful and upbeat book.
