Sibling Support

SD SIBS: Support and Inspire our Brothers and Sisters
In an effort to support siblings of adults with disabilities, SD SIBS was formed through a joint effort between USD Center for Disabilities and SD Parent Connection. This group is dedicated to supporting individuals who have a sibling with a disability and addressing the needs, challenges, and successes for siblings in South Dakota and the surrounding area. For more information, contact: Sara Hansen, or visit the Website and Facebook:

SibNet is online community of sisters and brothers of people who have disabilities. They share concerns and challenges,  insights and joys that only other sibs are likely to understand as well as information about services, resources, and strategies that help members advocate for their brothers and sisters, themselves, and their families.

SibTeen is Facebook group where teenage sibs of people with disabilities can connect with others who get it.

Sib20 is a Facebook group where twenty-something sibs of people with disabilities connect with others who "get it." It's sibling support from a young adult perspective.
