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 brothers and sisters have much to offer one another — if they are given a chance.
Sibshops are a spirited mix of new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends, and discussion activities.
Through a generous grant from Variety, The Children’s Charity, Good Friend is pleased to offer Good Friend Sibshops to children age 8-13 who have a sibling with autism and/or other brain-based disabilities. By educating, supporting and fostering friendships, we hope to help them in their lifelong journey as Super Sibs! Events are held on the first Saturday of the month, September through May, at The Offsite Collaboration Center (Brookfield).
