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.

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