Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

When a Sibling or Parent is Arrested and Incarcerated
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art170856.asp

The criminal justice system is a complicated and painful experience for the whole family. It may be even more difficult to explain to a child or teen with a developmental disabiilty what it means when their brother, sister, cousin or parent is arrested and sentenced to time in jail or prison.
