For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of their loving concern for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has a disability. However, for the kids who attend them, Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal events where they will:
Meet other sibs (usually for the first time);
Talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs with others who “get it”;
Play some great games;
Explore how other brother and sisters handle sticky situations sometimes faced by brothers and sisters;
Learn about the services their brothers and sister receive; and
Have some more fun!
