A support group for children & teens of siblings with special needs

What does it feel like being a brother or sister of a child with special needs? Family life changes and the needs of the siblings can be overshadowed by the child with special needs. This 8 week Sib-Shop was created to support, empower, educate, and foster sibling relationships. The Sib-Shops are facilitated by psychological assistants, doctorate level mental health professionals, and Marriage and Family Therapy Interns and Trainees.

Group Topics include how a sibling can:

Understand their brother or sister�s disability
Manage their feelings
Navigate their relationships with peers
Build their own self-esteem and recognize their own special qualities

The Sib-Shop curriculum is interactive with arts and crafts, journaling, group activities, snacks, group discussions, and most of all a supportiveenvironment you can meet new friends who also have siblings with special needs.
