In most families, siblings will have the longest-lasting relationships with each other. This can be especially challenging for families in which a child has a disability or special needs. Sibshops provide peer support, guidance and information to typically-developing siblings of kids with special needs in a lively, recreational setting. Open to kids in K-5th grade, Encompass Sibshops are run by Encompass staff and older siblings of special needs kids. Workshops are held on the first Friday of the month during the school year. Recognizing that being a brother or sister of a person with special needs has unique ups and downs, workshops offer a variety of fun activities and great opportunities to celebrate their contributions and talk with peers who “get it”.
*Sibshops are $20 per session per child, and includes all materials and snacks. On Kidzbounce days, there will be an additional $8 fee, to be paid to Kidzbounce when you sign-in and drop off your child.
Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to 16 participants and will be confirmed via e-mail. If you register for a session and your child is unable to attend, that payment may be applied to a future session within the same academic year. Scholarship funds are available upon request.
