What are Siblings workshops?
Brothers and sisters of those with Down syndrome tend to be compassionate, understanding, wonderful people. But we also know that being the brother or sister of someone with Down syndrome can have its tough times, too! These workshops will guide brothers and sisters through questions like “What is Down syndrome?”; “What do I do if I’m jealous of my brother or sister with Down syndrome?”; or “What will my brother’s or sister’s future look like?”
Workshops provide the opportunity for a lot of concerns to be addressed and feelings to be validated. Brothers and sisters will learn they are not alone in their experiences, while gathering some good strategies for how to cope with some difficult times with their brother or sister. It’s a time to learn, grow, and celebrate our community of brothers and sisters! Let’s get started!
