Sibshops are for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has a disability. Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal events where they will:

  • 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;
  • Explore how other brother and sisters handle sticky situations sometimes faced by brothers and sisters;
  • Laugh
  • Learn about the services their brothers and sister receive; and
  • Have some more fun!

The first Sibshops is Sunday, March 26 at 11:30AM at The Gathering Place.
