Sibshops: Sibling Support Program
Sibshops are a celebration of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters. Sibshops offer brothers and sisters of children with disabilities the opportunity to meet other siblings of people with special needs, share common joys and concerns, and learn about the implications of their siblings’ disability-all in a lively, recreational environment. Sibshops are not therapy, group or otherwise, although their effect may be therapeutic for some children. Sibshops acknowledge that most brothers and sisters of people with disabilities, like their parents, are doing well, despite the challenges of an illness or disability. Sibshops are a lively mixture of new games, discussion and activities. Participants should dress comfortably and be ready for action!
