Super Sibs Club is a series of Sibshops – peer recreation and support sessions for students, grades 2-5, who have brothers or sisters with disabilities, special needs, and/or significant health issues. For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of commitment to and 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 (often for the first time);
• Have fun;
• 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;
• Learn how other brother and sisters handle sticky situations sometimes faced by brothers and sisters;
• Laugh;
• Learn about the services their brothers and sister receive; and
• Have some more fun!
