Hannah presented along with Tom Fish, Ph.D., Director of Social Work and Family Support Programs at the Ohio State University Nisonger Center. The topic was The Next Generation: Forging Relationships with Providers and Siblings which examined the aging of the I/DD population as well as their parents and siblings stepping into the role of guardians. The convention segment looked at how a sibling’s approach may be different than the parents and how providers can interact and engage siblings to benefit people served.
