Sibshops is a guidebook for organizing and conducting workshops for siblings of children with a broad variety of special needs. These workshops provide children and young adults with much-needed social and emotional support from their peers in a recreational and fun atmosphere. They can speak openly about how they feel (positively and negatively) about having a brother or sister with special needs in an understanding and supportive environment. New additions to the second edition include a chapter on Sibshops Standards of Practice, advice for service providers and parents from siblings, and techniques for adapting the program to younger children or teenagers.

Review:

"Parents and teachers will glean valuable insights with or without a Sibshops program."
