Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in-between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another — if they are given a chance.
Sibshops are a spirited mix of new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends, and discussion activities.
Good Friend is pleased to partner with ARCh to offer Good Friend Sibshops to children age 8-13 who have a sibling with autism and/or other brain-based disabilities. By educating, supporting and fostering friendships, we hope to help them in their lifelong journey as Super Sibs! On select Saturdays, we also offer a free “Families Facing the Future” session for caregivers.
