Sibshops
Contact Sarah Beale: 410-578-5169 or sibshops@mwph.org
Sibshops provides a comfortable and fun environment to meet other brothers and sisters of children with special needs. This program allows children to share the positives and negatives of having a sibling with special needs, as well as providing coping strategies and educational tools to the children so they can learn to adapt to common experiences more easily. At Sibshops, children who have a sibling with special needs play fun, new games and activities that promote team-building, self-awareness, a positive self-image, disability awareness, and discussions about the joys and challenges of having a sibling with special needs. This program is offered to 4-7 and 8-13 year olds in designated locations. If you are interested in having your child participate in our program, please contact the Sibshops Coordinator.
