Sibshops is intended to provide young people that have brothers or sisters with Autism, peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting.
This highly desirable program will be run by trained and certified Sibshop Facilitators. For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of their loving concern for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has ASD; their Sibling!
For the kids who attend them, Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal events where they will offer:
- Meeting other sibs (usually for the first time);
- Fun atmosphere
- Discussion about having a sib with special needs with others who “get it”;
- Some great games;
- Exploring how other brother & sisters handle sticky situations;
- Learning about the services their brothers and sister receive;
- Pizza & Drinks!!
- Have much more …
