Support for siblings of special needs children

Recommended Posts

I don't know of an online source but our children participated in SibShops when they were younger. It was a great program for them to meet other children who understood what life with a special sibling is like.


eta: I notice they reference Facebook and Yahoo groups for sibs on the site. I have no knowledge of these groups - just noticed mention of them.

My DS has participated in Sibshop when we go to the annual family retreat for families of children who are deaf/hard-of-hearing. He has really enjoyed it and I think it has helped him to be around other siblings that understand. The leader is a friend of mine who is an adult sibling with a deaf brother, so she is uniquely qualified to lead the group. DS loves "Ms. D"!
