Making connections with adult siblings of people with disabilities and the people who love them

This blog is intended to be a collaborative effort and to that end the next post will be a follow up about issues at the intersection of disability and sexuality. The post will be written by Bethany Stevens, JD, MA.

The idea behind the creation of the blog is that some of the content will  be reflections offered by Plato’s Sister and from time to time those posts will be supplemented by the writing of experts who will offer siblings resources to navigate the too oftern uncharted waters of adult relationships with siblings with disabilities.

If you are curious to know more about Ms. Stevens you can check out her bio on the web site of the Center for Leadership in Disability.Ms. Stevens is the 2011  recipient of the Irving Zola Award for Emerging Scholarship from the Society for Disability Studies.

We are excited to share Bethany’s reflections in this space and also excited to join the conversation her writing will generate.

    Really interesting stuff, Regina! Thanks for taking the time to write the blog and I enjoyed reading your guest blogger’s comments, too. I really like this idea of having more open communication with others about sex. I think it would make a big difference if we talked about how to promote healthy sexual relationships as opposed to only focusing on how to avoid disease.
