FREE Sibling Support Groups

Training and Treatment Innovations, Inc Sibshops are a recreation based support group just for brothers and sisters of children with special needs! Sibshops is not therapy but it can be therapeutic for some children.

Sibshops acknowledges that being a brother or sister of a person with special needs is both rewarding and challenging.

The Sibshops model is a blend of information and discussion, mixed with entertaining, exciting, and unique recreational activities, snacks and lots of fun!
