This Children’s Day, we’re shining the spotlight on a special group of heroes who play big roles in supporting our children with developmental needs. These heroes without capes are none other than our Super Siblings. Besides being their sibling’s very first friend and pillar of strength, these Super Siblings also provide their parents with the much-needed help in caring for their siblings with developmental needs.

In this feature, our social work team interviewed and celebrated five pairs of siblings who share with us their joys and hopes for each other.

Watch the video below to find out how they have inspired us.

When sibling relationships are nurtured and strengthened, they can stretch out through the entire arc of their lives, allowing them to become each other’s’ first and forever best friends.

So, take proactive steps to affirm your child’s love and support towards their siblings today! Happy Children’s Day to all children, and a special shout out to our Super Siblings who have outpoured care, kindness and understanding to those around them.
