Sibshops are pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of 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 a good thing, others a not-so good thing, and for many, somewhere in-between. They reflect a belief that our communities need to acknowledge the difficulties faced by brothers and sisters and provide them with the opportunity to connect with each other – in the same way that many parents of children with special needs have benefited from sharing their experiences.
September 14 & 15th in Vancouver
Participants can register for Day 1 only or both days.
Day 1 will include a siblings panel – a similar panel was a highlight of ACT's recent Vancouver Island Autism Conference with many participants deeply moved by the very special perspective of siblings.
See the details page for a breakdown of Day 1 and Day 2.
