Brothers and sisters who have a sib with special needs now have a program that’s just for them called Sibshops. At Sibshops, they’ll have a chance to meet other kids whose brothers and sisters have special needs and talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with a disability. Most important, they’ll have fun!!

Sibshops are for 8 to 16 year old brothers and sisters who have a sib with special needs. Our Sibshops are run by a team of people who have a professional and, in some cases, a personal understanding of the impact a child’s special needs can have on brothers and sisters. Equally important, they have great kid skills!

Sibshops will have fun outrageous games, cooking activities and hands on activities that will keep your kids engaged in an energetic way.
