Upcoming Parent Workshops

Siblings of Children with Special Needs

Thursday, April 11, 2019
9:30 am–11:00 am

The child with special needs often dominates the parents’ attention, time, and resources. Sibling reactions can be quite varied and are often troubling for parents. In this workshop, we will explore the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that might enhance or diminish the sibling’s personal growth and discuss ways for the family to navigate through the struggles.
