This group, ages 8-15, is for siblings of special needs children. Given the varied age range, the students may break out into age appropriate groupings and discussions.  The program will meet 4 times a year on a Saturday morning to discuss common issues particular to being a sibling of someone with special needs, followed by lunch and an exciting and fun field trip opportunity for the group to enjoy – some great trips are planned!  Topics discussed will include:  what it is like to have a special needs sibling; how to talk about their sibling with friends; how to handle the strong emotions involved; helpful books and resources.

Primary Instructor(s):  Linda Nathan (Social Worker) and Nina Riley (Guidance Counselor)

Dates:  Saturdays Nov 23, Jan 11, Mar 21 and May 2 - 10am-2pm
