Home Base

Staff Writer
Columbus Parent

Every two weeks our editor Jane Hawes contributes her Home Base column to The Columbus Dispatch’s Life section. Today her column focuses on what she has learned about yet another special person in a special-needs family — the typical sibling.

The column also called attention to a great article in our April issue by writer Debbie Angelos about typical siblings. And in both the column and the magazine article, we talked about sibling support groups for these typical siblings. Here are some handy links to ones in the area:

The Nisonger Center at Ohio State University SIBS program

Easter Seals Supporting Our Siblings

Nationwide Children’s Hospital Children’s Clubhouse
