14 Sullivan ARC Sibshop is a fun, dynamic group for kids with siblings with special needs. It is not therapy but a social outlet that provides opportunities for peer support. Currently open to kids ages 4-21. We do monthly (usually twice a month) recreational activities, have discussions re: sibs and what it is like growing up with a sibling with special needs. Usually the conversations are spontaneous and completely driven by the kids, its good to know there are others out in the world feeling the same things you are. Some of the things we have done are: bowling, mini golfing, made t-shirts, participated in the Autism walk, took in a Broadway play in the city, swimming, arts-n-crafts, hiking. We have a blast and the kids really look forward to the next time we get together. This program is funded with a grant so all activities and food are paid for by the program.
