A study at Vanderbilt University Kennedy Center is looking at the impact that having siblings with developmental disabilities has on adolescents.  They are seeking families who have two children between the ages of 12 and 18 who would be willing to participate in the study.

Parents and siblings are invited to fill out an online survey that takes about 20 minutes to complete.  Both parents of children with and without disabilities are encouraged to participate.

Those who participate will be entered in a drawing for one of 40 – $50 Target gift cards. You will have approximately a 1 in 10 chance of winning a gift card.
