What are Sibshops?
Sibshops provide young brothers and sisters peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting. Siblings are encouraged to share the challenges and celebrate the joys with brothers and sisters in similar situations, while participating in fun and interactive activities.
Sibshops are lively, action packed, 3-hour workshops that celebrate the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some of a good thing, for others a not-so-good thing and for many, something in between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another-if they are given the chance.

The Sibshop model mixes information and discussion activities with new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range) and special guests.

Who runs Sibshops?

Sibshops are run by the BYS team who have professional, and in some cases, personal understanding of the impact of a child’s disability can have on family members. BYS professional team includes counselors, social workers, behavior therapists, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists.

Who can attend?

Siblings of brother(s) and/or sister(s) with a developmental or learning disorder between the ages of 8-13.
