“The greatest gift our parents ever gave us was each other”
AN EVIDENCE BASED PROGRAM FOR SIBLINGS OF CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES RUN BY OUR EXPERIENCED PSYCHOLOGIST
Siblings of children with disability or chronic illness have particular needs themselves. Some can feel quite isolated. Sibling groups allow these children to come together, have fun, share experiences and learn ways of dealing positively with challenges they face.
The Sibworks program for primary school aged siblings has been used by providers around Australia and also overseas. It has been evaluated by the University of Adelaide and has been included in the Communities for Children Facilitating Partners Evidence-based programme profiles.
Groups are limited to a maximum of 12 participants to ensure that each child is able to be fully supported and to feel safe and not overwhelmed.
SUITABLE FOR 8 -12 YEAR OLDS
