Upcoming Virtual Sibshops

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.

Virtual Sibshops are offered from 4:30pm to 5:30pm on Thursdays.  For dates and registration information, contact Tammy Besser or Yuto Kanii.

JCFS utilizes the Sibshop model developed by Don Meyer of Sibling Support Project.  For more detailed information about Sibshops, visit the national Sibshop website at

Registration is per Sibshop. Virtual Sibshops are free but registration is required to attend.
Children can attend one, two, three, or all of the Sibshop series.
