Choose whether to attend 8-1 pm to learn about sibling issues for families who have children with special health care needs OR add on the 1-3 pm session to learn how to run Sibshops.

For Sibshop Facilitator Certification:  Participants must attend the full day of training. This training is for Sibshop facilitators and administrators who want to learn how to run a Sibshop.  Trainees will learn about sibs’ life-long concerns, find out how to organize a Sibshop, and experience an online Demonstration Sibshop. Upon completion of the training, Certified Sibshop Facilitators may register and start their own local Sibshop.

For Sibling Educational Workshop: Participants attend the first two parts of the training. This portion of the training is designed to educate parents, service providers, and others about sibs’ ever-changing issues across the lifespan.  These are participants who are interested in sibling issues, but not necessarily in running a Sibshop.

The Sibling Support ProjectFounded in 1990, the Sibling Support Project is the first national program dedicated to the life-long and ever-changing concerns of millions of brothers and sisters of people with special health, developmental, and mental health concerns. We are proud to be a program of Kindering, an award-winning organization that embraces children of diverse abilities and their families by providing the finest education and therapies to nurture hope, courage and the skills to soar. We’ve published books for and about brothers and sisters, host online groups for teen and adult siblings, and presented workshops on sibling issues internationally and in every state. We are best known for helping local communities start Sibshops—lively peer support groups for school-age brothers and sisters of kids with special needs.
