This poster will present findings of a study designed to investigate the experience of adults who have a sibling with disabilities in Korea. This study used a qualitative, grounded theory approach with eight participants. Individual semi-structured in-depth interviews and audio-recorded with all participants were conducted. Through the coding process, we constructed a paradigm model on the life of adults who have sibling with disabilities in Korea. The results of this study pointed to the importance of context and intervening conditions as well as the provision to support siblings who have people with disabilities in Korea.
