Seattle Children’s Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal, award-winning celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another – if they are given a chance.

The Sibshops model mixes information and discussion activities with new games (designed to be unique, offbeat and appealing to a wide ability range) and special guests. There are currently more than 200 Sibshops across the United States, Canada and elsewhere. All are modeled after Seattle Children’s Seattle-area Sibshops! To learn where else in the world you can find a Sibshop, visit the Sibling Support Project, a national program dedicated to the concerns of brothers and sisters of people with special needs.

Sibshops for Siblings of Kids with Special Developmental and Learning Needs includes, but is not limited to, autism, Down syndrome, ADHD and developmental delays.

Sibshops for Siblings of Kids with Developmental Needs and/or Special Health Concerns includes, but is not limited to, diabetes; cancer; cystic fibrosis; muscular dystrophy; heart, kidney, liver, gastrointestinal or lung disease; autism; cerebral palsy; Down syndrome; ADHD; and spina bifida.
