Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in-between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another — if they are given a chance. Sibshops are a spirited mix of new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends, and discussion activities.
The Sibshop curriculum is used throughout the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Guatemala, Turkey, and Argentina.
Pervasive Parenting Center has signed a contract to start a SibShop in eastern Oklahoma. The first meeting will be Saturday, Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at D&D Counseling in Poteau. Siblings ages 6-15 are welcome. The event is FREE, lunch provided.
If you would like to register email the following form to firstname.lastname@example.org, or print it and bring it the day of the meeting.
