Sibling Resource- Part 1

17 Oct

I was googling some autism stuff over the weekend, as per usual, and I found this wonderful resource for siblings of people with autism.

Sibling Support Project strives to acknowledge, connect, and support siblings of those with special needs. They hold SibShops (workshops for siblings), they offer online groups tailored for each age sibling (child, teen, and adult), and educate parents on how siblings are affected.

Their mission is to “increase the peer support and information opportunities for brothers and sisters of people with special needs and to increase parents’ and providers’ understanding of sibling issues.”

Sibling Support Project realizes that a diagnosis doesn’t just affect one person, but rather the entire family.  They know that often times the siblings are the ones who will look out for a special needs person after parents pass away.  Sibling Support Project recognizes what an important role brothers and sisters have, and the believe, “the sibling relationship gives new meaning to ‘being there for the long haul.’ “

Please check them out here.
