Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Photovoice was used as a participatory tool to document how the experience of having a sibling with developmental disability influenced the lives of well siblings. Data were collected from three cohorts: young child, adolescent, and young adult well siblings. Six major themes arose: (1) normalcy, (2) challenges, (3) support, (4) learned, (5) similarities, and (6) happiness.
