Narrative

Community Sibling Groups are designed to help an exceptional and often overlooked population of children: Siblings of children with special needs. These siblings are in complex social and psychological circumstances and have needs of their own that require attention and support.

Our Community Sibling Groups are designed to provide a safe and supportive setting where siblings can explore and discuss their individual experience of having a brother or sister with special needs; addressing both their complicated feelings and celebrating their joys and successes. They develop skill to better understand their relationship to themselves and to their brother or sister, while providing the distinctive opportunity for siblings to connect with peers in similar circumstances.
