A chance for siblings of children with disabilities and special needs to meet.

They discuss their common joys and concerns, learn to handle sibling-specific “sticky situations” and have fun!

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).

August 25
September 29
October 20
November 17
December 15

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