Sibling Resources
One of the most common questions asked when a family learns their child has/will be born with Down syndrome is, "how is this going to affect my other child(ren)". Although the typical affect is a positive one, special programs have been created because of the important role siblings play in the development of their brother/sister with Down syndrome.
