  • What is a Sibshop?

    A Sibshop is described by Don Meyer, Director of the Sibling Support
    Project, as “opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with
    health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education
    within a recreational context.”  Siblings meet with their peers in an
    energetic, fun celebration of the many contributions made by brothers
    and sister of kids with special needs.  They are able to share the
    good and not so good parts about having a sibling with special needs.
    It is not a therapy, but may be therapeutic for some children.
