SibLink is Enrolling

SibLink is currently enrolling families for sibling groups to be held in the coming months. The groups are offered for 4- to 12-year-old siblings of children who have developmental, medical or behavioral diagnoses to help them better understand and adapt to their unique family situations.

Parents of SibLink group participants also meet to address their questions and concerns. For more information, call 401-444-8945

SibLink Research

The goal of the SibLink research program is to learn more about siblings' experiences so that we and other health professionals can develop better services to meet siblings' needs. In our research studies, siblings and parents participate in interview with Siblink staff and complete questionnaires that are similar to our clinical intake evaluations. We have several ongoing studies about siblings that are open to all families regardless of whether they participate in SibLink clinical program. Siblings and parents who participate in our studies are compensated for their time and effort.

If you are interested in learning more about or participating in one of our research projects, please contact us or call 401-793-8450.
