Abilis’ popular Sibshops’ workshops are back for 2021 and are offering a chance for Fairfield County teens, ages 10-to-14, who have siblings with a disability or special need, to meet virtually for a fun and informative workshop. Workshops are scheduled for March 24, April 21, and May 19, from 5:00 until 6:30 p.m. and are held via Zoom. Workshops are $40 and registration must be made in advance. To register, visit abilis.us/calendar or contact workshop co-facilitator Maddy Schulte at email@example.com.
Sibshops are high-spirited, fun workshops that combine recreation, discussion and information for siblings of those with a disability. Sibshops provides a safe space for siblings to share their thoughts and feelings while also meeting others in similar circumstances and provides a place to enjoy themselves through different recreation activities and through playing games while also learning about the services their brother(s) or sister(s) receive.
Sibshops is an international program created by the Sibling Support Project. The Sibshop curriculum is used throughout the United States and Canada and in Japan, New Zealand, Argentina, Iceland, Ireland, England, Italy, and Turkey.
The Abilis Sibshops program is limited to a group size of 10-to-12. Registration is limited and spaces will fill up fast, so it is recommended to register online at abilis.us/calendar (click on the corresponding date to go to the Sibshops registration page).
