an opportunity to meet other brothers and sisters who "know" what
it's like to be a sibling, have an opportunity to talk about, and
to listen to, others' concerns related to being a sibling of a
child with special needs, in a supportive non-judgmental
environment and to make new friends, learn new games, do crafts,
share a meal, and have a lot of fun.
Participants should dress comfortably and be ready for action!
Parents bring in $5 per child per session. Includes lunch.
