Quick post: call for sibling feedback

I got an email from the Sibling Support Network this morning. Per Don’s request that we share this with other siblings, I am posting the text here, with the primary links activated:

Dear adult sibs of people with developmental disabilities everywhere–

Emily Holl and I want to create a book just for sibs to help them as they think about their future—and the future of their sib who has a developmental disability.

Code-named “The Sibling Survival Guide,” we want to make this book as practical and helpful as possible. To achieve this goal, we’d love your advice and guidance. Would you do us—and sibs everywhere—a huge favor and answer seven open-ended questions? We want to write a book that YOU will find useful!

Here’s the link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/survival

Thanks, as always!

Don Meyer

PS—Would you please share this with other siblings you know?

A bit about us, in case we haven’t met: Don is the director of the Seattle-based Sibling Support Project http://www.siblingsupport.org.
