SibShops: A Place for Siblings Tuesday, August 4th, 20204:00 pm - 5:00 pm Online! via Zoom
What are sibshops? Sibshops provides an avenue for siblings to form a community and share experiences that could lead to a positive impact. Siblings will share many of the same concerns that parents experience but have a unique perspective.
Sibshops are pedal-to-the-metal events where participants will meet other sibs (usually for the first time), have fun, laugh, talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs, play some great games, learn something about the services their brothers and sister receive and have some more fun.
Trained SARRC clinicians will run the Sibshops sessions to help support long-lasting sibling relationships.
Who can attend? Sibshops at SARRC are offered to sibs of individuals with autism in the 7 to 13-year-old age range.
What happens at a Sibshop? Fun! Sibshops have several activities that include games and opportunities for group discussions.
Do I need to be present with my child? Nope! Parents are welcome to help set up the child participating with the technology they'll be using to access the Sibshop, but other than that - it'll be just the sibs! Before the day of the event, we will require that all parents sign a short information sheet and release for their child or that we have a release on file for you.
