For Sibshop Providers!

Sibshop providers are some of the best people on earth!  They care deeply about young brothers and sisters of people with special needs and go the extra mile to make sure that the lively Sibshops they run give young sibs the support and validation they richly deserve. 

Here’s what Sibshop providers can do from this page:

They can read the Sibshop Standards of Practice.  The Standards describe the expectations we have for sibling programs that call themselves “Sibshops.”

They can register their Sibshop. Only registered Sibshops may use the Sibshop name, logo, and curriculum.

They can join SibGroup, a Yahoogroup for those who run Sibshops.  Every registered Sibshop must have at least one facilitator who is a member of SibGroup.

They can access the Sibshop Activity Archive to see activities and materials shared by fellow Sibshop facilitators from around the world.  To access this page, you will need to login (see the dark green rectangle in upper right corner) using the login information and information used for registration.

Join Us At One of Our Workshops or Training Events
The only way to become a first-generation Sibshop facilitator is to attend a two-day Sibshop training.

Even if you don't want to  become a Sibshop facilitator, you can join us for the first day for a lively and rewarding discussion of sibs' issues across the lifespan. 

Please know:
Registration costs are determined by the agencies hosting the workshops and trainings.  For information and to register, please contact these agencies directly. 

Below you'll find dates for upcoming Sibshop facilitator trainings and other sibling workshops.  If you'd like to discuss hosting a training in your community, please drop us a line at
