Sibling Support Group

Family Respite Services works together with Children First to provide a sibling support group.  This group is built on a "sibship" model.  The children come together once a month to have fun, participate in games and crafts and share their experiences.  Staff from the two agencies lead the group.

The sibling support group is a way for siblings to share together and have opportunity to discuss in a fun way the challenges and opportunities provided to them by having a brother or sister with a disability.  "Aunt Blabby" offers friendly advice to questions posed by the children. 

Families interested in this group can talk to their Family Coordinator.
