Supporting Siblings of Children with Special Needs

Raising a child with special needs can be a tough job – but so can being the sibling of a child with special needs. Sometimes siblings feel left out or overlooked because parents spend more time focusing on their brother or sister who requires more help. They may also feel that they have to assume some adult responsibilities in order to help care for their sibling. It’s important to take steps to make all children feel valued, appreciated, and included.


Raising children is a full-time job and every kid is different. PediaPlex can be your one-stop-shop for services for your child with special needs to ease your schedule and help them become as independent as possible. We also offer counseling to help siblings adjust.
