Virtual Sibshops offer brothers and sisters of children with a variety of special needs a place to meet other siblings in a relaxed, supportive, and recreational setting. They discuss their common joys and concerns, learn to handle sibling-specific “sticky situations” and have fun! For kids ages 6-12 years old. Teens are also welcome. Contact us for more information.

Looking for a fun way to learn social awareness, communication skills, and self-regulation? The Social Superhero Training Academy is open! In this speech-language pathologist-lead group, children will use Social Thinking Curriculum to learn to be flexible-thinking superheroes. They will learn to defeat cartoon characters who embody different social challenges such as Rock Brain, who makes people get stuck on their own ideas, Body Snatcher, who moves people’s bodies away from the group, and Topic Twistermeister, who makes people jump off topic.

People with Disabilities & Their Families

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, educating students looks a lot different lately. Are you concerned about the special education supports your student is receiving? Curious about what your child’s educational rights are during this changing educational environment?

Attorneys Tracy Hartlieb and Cera Horste will provide a general overview of special education rights and explore education issues families are facing due to the pandemic, including remote/hybrid learning and the shifting between models.
