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.
