Video: Children with disability: sibling feelings

In this short video, parents of children with disability describe how their typically developing children feel and manage everyday life with a brother or sister with disability. These children show tolerance, compassion and understanding. They’re also good at explaining their sibling’s disability to friends. Having a sibling with disability can be an enriching experience for children.
