Introducing the Texas Sibling Network
The Texas Sibling Network (TSN) is a peer-run community for adult siblings of people with disabilities. TSN provides support and resources, as well as opportunities for siblings to learn advocacy and leadership skills. TSN is the state chapter of the national Sibling Leadership Network and is housed at the Texas Center for Disability Studies (TCDS); local chapters have opened in Austin, Houston, the Permian Basin, Lubbock, and DFW with plans to expand and create multiple chapters throughout Texas. Anyone interested in opening a chapter in their city should contact Colleen Williams for more information. TSN provides an excellent opportunity to get involved and help support siblings in leading an inclusive, self-determined life.
