The following Foundational Family Services are provided by Child & Community Resources and our partners through the Northern Collaborative.
SibShops are events which provide 8-13 year old brothers and sisters of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) an opportunity to meet other siblings in a relaxed, recreational setting.
SibShops intersperse information and discussion activities with high-energy games, new friends, and craft activities to get children talking, laughing, and learning. An introduction to ASD will be included to provide participants with a better understanding of the disorder and how it may impact their sibling.
