The Miracle League of CT has provided programs for children with special needs for more than 5 years now. We've offered programs for the Parents too! Now we have decided to focus a new offering on the siblings. It's called Sibshops!
Statistically speaking, the longest lasting relationship in your child with special needs life will be with their siblings. We don't need to tell our families that when you have a child with special needs, it has an impact on every member of the family. It's just a different reality for the siblings. Much of the impact is great and enlightening for them. Some is not so great. Sibshops uses fast paced recreational activities that help the sibs to get to know each other and to share feelings and strategies about how they go about their lives. We are offering a pilot program for sibs ages 7-13 beginning in March. There will be one meeting each month through June. We will meet at Chapter 126 in Bristol.
