Sibshops - Support for siblings of kids with special needs
Sibshops are a celebration of the many lifelong contributions made by brothers and sisters of people with special health and developmental needs.
Sibshops provide young brothers and sister peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting. They are pedal-to-the-metal events where sibs:
Meet other sibs (usually for the first time)
Talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs with others who "get it"
Play some great games
Learn how others handle sticky situations sometimes faced by brothers and sisters
Learn about the services their brothers and sister receive
Have some more fun!
Operates on a monthly schedule.
Sibshops: For Children 9 - 14 years old, meets on monthly Wednesdays from
5:30 - 7:00PM.
Next meeting May 3rd! Come check it out.
