Sibling Groups 






Sibling groups are a unique place where children and teens living with a brother or sister with special needs can have their emotional needs addressed, learn skills to better relate to their sibling, and understand their frustrations are normal.






Sibling Support Group
This is a confidential support group for siblings  with a brother/sister having special needs, grouped by age.  Participants are able to gain support and understanding from other siblings who may share similar experiences and emotions.  Themes vary by week but are tailored to the needs of participants.
