Inclusion foothills would like to offer a program in Vulcan for siblings of those with special needs. (See attached poster about the High river group)
Sibshops provides a safe, confidential, non-judgmental, and fun environment where brothers and sisters of special needs siblings meet other siblings, enabling them to develop supportive relationships and coaching skills.
With a lot of fun and laughter involved, sibs have the opportunity to talk to other sibs about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with special needs. Quite often, attending Sibshops is the first time a sibling meets others who “get it.”
Those who attend experience a lasting positive effect on how they feel towards their sibling, learn coping strategies for sticky situations, and leave with a better understanding of the services their sibs need. If your interested please contact the Vulcan FCSS office via Facebook or call 403-485-2192.
