The siblings of children with disabilities come face to face with society’s prevailing stigmas regarding people with disabilities, the result of ignorance, and lack of information and knowledge. The stereotypes and social problems in accepting the other who is different mean that siblings have to cope with the challenges, difficulties, and complex emotional experiences.
The article describes an intervention program in the sibling’s social environment, aimed at empowering them and creating a change in attitudes towards people with difficulties among the children in their social environment.
