Brothers and sisters of a child with special needs will now have their own specialized group experience with others who understand and ‘get it’. Siblings will have an opportunity to meet other children their own age in a safe environment where they will be able to share their stories and experiences of living with an individual who has special needs.
Through the use of play therapy and creative arts, SIBS will be able to share their difficulties and challenges, process their emotions and build resilience. In this creative and fun group, SIBS will be able to share the wide range of emotions they have regarding their brother or sister.
Key objectives of this group will be to explore elements of how their sibling’s diagnosis affects the family as a whole, how they themselves are impacted (such as issues of jealousy, parent/child relationship and sibling relationship), understanding their sibling’s diagnosis and developing post-tests with both the participants and their parents.
This group may be covered by your insurance or Extended Health Plan.
