Sibling Support Project: Sibshop Trainings (Sibling with disabilities or special needs)

sibshops2014 Sibshop trainings

Sibshop facilitator trainings in Florida, Washington State, Nebraska, Illinois, Texas, and elsewhere!

Please see below for details.

The only way to become a first-generation Sibshop facilitator is to attend a two-day Sibshop training. And adult sibs, parents, service providers, university students and others often join us for just the first day for a lively and rewarding discussion of sibs’ issues across the lifespan. We hope you can join us!
