Sibshops

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!

We at Good Friend, Inc., are taking precautions to keep our staff safe during the coronavirus pandemic, and we know that schools and other community organizations are working to mitigate risks for their populations, too. We also know how important social-emotional learning is, whether school instruction is in-person or virtual.  Therefore, we are offering live remote programs! While our preference is to provide these programs in person, we recognize that doing so may not be safe. We also know that, even if you plan to have us visit your school, a positive test result for COVID-19 could change your instruction method overnight. Know that we are flexible and prepared. Get in touch with us for more information on how we can make your school commUNITY a more inclusive atmosphere for neurodivergent learners.
