Siblings and genetic conditions

Siblings and genetic conditions

This month we’re talking about siblings who have brothers and sisters with genetic conditions. We have lots of new information on genetic conditions on our website if you want to learn more. It’s also World Down syndrome Day this month – Down syndrome is a genetic condition. Do you have a brother or sister with Down syndrome? Life can be fun, worrying and exciting all at the same time when you have a brother or sister who has Down syndrome . Do you worry because people are mean to your brother or sister and you want to know what you can do? Or are you thinking about the future and wondering whether you will be able to move away and have your own life?  
We’ve also got stuff you can read telling you how you can have fun with your brother or sister or learn new skills.  Whatever is on your mind, we’d love to hear from you – go to our YoungSibs chat and tell us what you think!
