2014 - November 16 – 22 is International Multiple Births Awareness Week (IMBAW). The theme for this year is "Encouraging our Multiples to Shine as Individuals".  The focus of this week is to encourage our multiples to become strong independent individuals, whilst maintaining their unique multiple bond. It can be a challenge to develop the individualisation within the strong multiple bond that exists. As parents and caregivers we believe we have a responsibility to assist our multiple birth children to develop the ability to make decisions independently of their co-multiples.

ICOMBO has been very fortunate to have articles written by Dr Nancy Segal and Dr Joan Friedman, an article about individuality in twinship written by adult male twins and an article from a mother of twins about her twin daughters choosing different schools. We are grateful for the opportunity to promote a factsheet on individuality, produced by Multiple Births Canada.

The following are supporting documents for the 2014 International Multiple Births Awareness Week:
