SibShops: A Place for Siblings Friday, November 12th, 20214:00 pm - 5:30 pm at SARRC's Campus for Exceptional Children 300 N. 18th Street Phoenix, AZ 85006
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 between various activities that include fun games, opportunities for group discussions, and crafts!
Do I need to stay? Parents can choose to drop their children off and wait in the parking lot or they can opt to leave SARRC and come back at the conclusion of the event to pick their children up. At check-in 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. Please note that current SARRC COVID-19 guidelines will need to be followed by everyone who is on a SARRC campus and that those guidelines are subject to change. We will keep you posted on what the current guidelines are so you and the sib attending know what to expect!
