Sibshops -- Join us September 19!
Brothers and sisters will have the longest-lasting relationship with a sibling who has a
disability-- one that can easily exceed 65 years . During their lives, they will experience most of
the unique concerns and joys their parents do. But few siblings of kids with special needs ever
have a chance to talk about their issues with others who “get it”--until now.
Brothers and sisters of kids with special needs from the Emerald Coast region now have a
program that’s just for them called Sibshops. At a Sibshop, brothers and sisters will:
● Meet other brothers and sisters of children with special needs
● Have fun
● Talk with others who “get it” about the good (and sometimes not so good!) parts of
having a sibling with special needs
● Learn more about disabilities and the services that people with disabilities receive
● Have some more fun!
Neuro--typical brothers and sisters, ages 8 - 13, who have siblings with disabilities are welcome! In the era of Covid-19, our Sibshops are being conducted virtually. We will meet on Saturday, September 19, from 12 noon until 1:00 p.m. A Zoom link will be sent to all who register.

DEADLINE TO REGISTER: September 16. Space is limited to 20 participants.
