Campus School Family Speaker Series Presents "No Sibling Left Behind" 

Join us for breakfast and coffee at 9:30 a.m,
followed by speakers and an adult siblings panel, starting at 10 a.m.
All panelists and the presenters are adult siblings with lived experience.
  • Presentation is geared to parents of young children and teens, as well as professionals.
  • The experience of growing up with a brother/sister with disabilities is addressed.
  • Strategies and tips to support siblings are included.
  • Current trends in sibling research and the growing sibling movement are reviewed.

Zachary Rosetti is the lead presenter. A former special education teacher and inclusion facilitator from New Hampshire, he is an Associate Professor of Special Education in the Wheelock College of Education & Human Development at Boston University. His research focuses on social interactions and friendships between students with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities, family engagement in special education, and sibling roles and relationships. Much of this work is inspired by his brother Todd who was a huge Red Sox fan and had cerebral palsy. Zach received an M.Ed. in Special Education-Severe Disabilities from the University of New Hampshire and a CAS in Disability Studies and a Ph.D. in Special Education from Syracuse University.

About the MSSN: The MSSN supports siblings of people with disabilities in the following ways: creating welcoming communities for siblings across the lifespan; improving the range and availability of sibling support services; and providing education about sibling-related issues.
