Sibshops full of fun and learning for siblings of children with special needs (Portland)

Young siblings may not get along all of the time, maybe not even most of the time, but you as their parent gladly take your children for who they are as individuals and as siblings. You see their love for one another and the things they offer each other, though, of course, your children would never admit it! 

Add one sibling’s developmental disability to the mix, and the situation changes for the other sibling, too. The unique roles that siblings of special needs children play in their brothers' or sisters’ lives are worth paying attention to and celebrating. Sibshops and Swindles Resource Center are doing just that on February 21 for a morning of fun games, new friends, and discussion. 

This Sibshop is for brothers and sisters ages 8-12 of children with special developmental needs. Expect a fun-filled morning full of information, discussion, and unique, off-beat games, all so that sibs can recognize the many things they offer each other.

Snacks will be provided at this Sibshop. If however, your child has dietary restrictions, send a snack along with him or her to the event. 

Come to Providence Portland Medical Center HCC 1, 2, 3 lower level (4805 NE Glisan St. Portland, OR 97213) on Saturday, Feb. 21, from 9:30am - 12pm. A $10 donation would be appreciated.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is a must, so register now. To register or with questions, please call (503) 215-2429.
