Sibshops is a much-needed program for brothers and sisters of children with special needs.
The goal of Sibshops is to address the needs of siblings by allowing them to share, play and learn with other children through age-appropriate fun activities. We try to provide a safe, nurturing environment and a therapeutic component. Here, brothers and sisters meet other brothers and sisters of children with special needs. They have fun making crafts and playing games. They talk about their experiences with their peers who know what it’s really like to have a sibling with a disability. Children are in a safe, nurturing environment, with a therapeutic component at the session.
Hear what Laura Beth DeHority, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who shares facilitation for the program, shares about Sibshops.
We offer 2 age groups for Sibshops:
- Siblings 8-12 years old, pizza provided.
- Siblings 5-7 years old, new for Fall 2019! Snack provided.
A couple of things we ask:
- Register your child for each Sibshop. Registration can be completed using our website. Access is available from the calendar sidebar link on this page.
- Please arrive on-time, the beginning of each session is important for setting expectations to create a safe learning environment for all participants.
Cost per session is $15.00 for members of Parents Helping Parents; non-member price is $20.00.
