Sibsensations

Our Sibshop offers support for typically developing siblings of children with developmental disabilities, physical disabilities and selected chronic illnesses. Children (ages 8-13) meet peers with similar experiences in a fun and friendly atmosphere, where they can discuss their common joys and concerns. They learn how to handle situations they all face regularly and discuss what it is like to have a brother or sister with special needs. This is accomplished through games, activities, crafts and age appropriate discussion. When: Saturdays, monthly 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Please call for dates. Where*: Center for Advanced Care, Room 1220 (1st floor) 1700 Luther Lane (on the corner of Dempster & Luther Lane) Cost: $10 for each session/$5 each additional sibling Please note room change! Registration is required. Please contact Kathryn Smart, MS, RN, CRRN at 847.723.9484 or email Kathryn.Smart@advocatehealth.com
