Sibs United are pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. Sibs United acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for come 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. Sibs United is a spirited mix of new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends and discussion activities.

TEEN SIBS ages 14-19
Join our Teen Sibs group for typically developing brothers and sisters ages 14-19 and meet other teens who get what it's like (both the good stuff and the tough stuff!) having a sibling with special needs. We'll hang out, have discussions, play games, eat pizza, watch movies, and have guest speakers on topics we decide together. We'll also go on trips some Friday or Saturday nights just for fun!
Tuesdays, every other week
