The Statewide Sibshop Initiative is a partnership of the Council, the Oklahoma Family Network, the Oklahoma Family Leadership Council, the Center for Learning and Leadership and the Child Study Center of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
Sibshops provide opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context.
The Statewide Sibshop Initiative will assist in establishing and supporting the concept in areas throughout Oklahoma.
What are Sibshops?
Sibshops are opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with disabilities and special health care needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context. The workshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters. Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some, a good thing, for others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in between.
