Sibling Support Program coming in September

August 2, 2016 | Family Resource Navigator

On Saturday, September 17th, 2016, siblings of children with disabilities will have the chance to have a day that’s all about them. The Virginia Institute of Autism is teaming up with Charlottesville Parks & Recreation to host a one-day Sibling Support Program.  Our goal is to provide siblings with opportunities for peer support within a lively, recreational context that emphasizes a kids’-eye-view.   We’ll intersperse information and discussion activities with new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), and special guest panel. Lunch provided.

Who:       For siblings (ages 8-14) of children with disabilities
Where:    Carver Recreation Center
When:     Saturday Sept. 17th, 2016, 9am-1pm
