Sibshops offer brothers and sisters of children with special needs an opportunity to meet other siblings in a relaxed, supportive, and recreational setting. Participants share common joys, common concerns, and learn to handle sibling-specific "sticky situations." Sibshops are a mix of games, discussion, food, and fun!  Registration is per Sibshop.

Sibshops are currently offered one Sunday afternoon each month in Northbrook. Teen Sibshops are offered as requested.
