LAMOILLE — Sibshops, a program just for sibs of kids with special needs, will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at LaMoille High School, 801 S. Main St., LaMoille.
Brothers and sisters of kids with special needs from Bureau, LaSalle and Lee counties now have a program that’s just for them. At Sibshops, they’ll have a chance to meet other kids whose brothers and sisters have special needs and talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with a disability. Most important, they’ll have fun.
This Sibshop is sponsored by LaMoille Community Unit School District. The cost is $5, which includes lunch and lots of fun activities. To register in advance, call Carol Darveau at LaMoille High School, 815-638-2144, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to receiving peer support, Sibshop participants will play lively “new games,” learn about their siblings’ special needs and the services they receive, participate in cooking and craft activities, and make new friends. Sibshops are a spirited celebration of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters.
