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.

2023/2024 JCFS Sibshops for Children and Teens, ages 6-16

This fall we will be offering Sibshops for both children and teens at our Northbrook location. We will begin each Sibshop as a large group for an opening activity and then separate into age groups (children and teens).

December 10, 2023
January 21, 2024

June 9

All In-Person Sibshops are on Sundays from 1pm to 3:30pm at our Northbrook location, 255 Revere Drive, Suite 200. 

Virtual Sibshops are not currently scheduled

Virtual Sibshops are for children who cannot participate in person AND for siblings who wish to connect between the in-person Sibshops. 

In-Person Sibshops are $30 per session; partial scholarships are available. Virtual Sibshops are free of charge. Pre-registration is required for in-person and virtual Sibshops. Please contact Yuto Kanii or Tammy Besser if you have any questions and/or to request registration materials.

Registration is per Sibshop. Registration is required to attend.
Children can attend one, two, three, or all of the Sibshop series.
