Sibling Support

At DSL, we are honored to celebrate our siblings! We offer resources and programs for siblings of all ages.

New Siblings

Welcoming a sibling with Down syndrome can sometimes be confusing or overwhelming. We can help you connect you with families who are similar to your own or have been through similar circumstances.

There are many resources and individuals who have been there that can help support your children.


It is not uncommon that adult brothers and sisters assist or are responsible for the well-being of their sibling with Down syndrome. Down Syndrome of Louisville’s staff are available for consultation and provide you with the Adult Sibling Toolkit: a comprehensive checklist of topics including guardianship, special needs trusts, medical, and much more.
