Sibling Conference


Sibs 2019: Connecting. Listening. Learning.

Saturday, March 30, 2019 | 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM
The Hotel at Arundel Preserve

Back by popular demand, the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council has partnered with the District of Columbia Developmental Disabilities Council to host Sibs 2019 to help siblings of all ages and supporters of sibling issues to connect, listen, and learn from each other.

Hear welcome remarks from Maryland State Senator Jeff Waldstreicher (who is a sibling himself) and meet the siblings (Emma, Amanda, Steve, and Walter) who are featured in three documentaries that are screening at the 2019 South by Southwest Film Festival:


interactive workshops and discussions for siblings and supporters and attend sessions on multicultural challenges, mental health, dating and relationships, parent perspectives, and special sessions just for young adults, teens, fathers and sons, and siblings ages 6 to 13.

Join us on Saturday, March 30, 2019 as we continue our journey exploring the lives of siblings of people with disabilities!
