The Up Side of Downs of Northeast Ohio (USOD) Sibshops

USOD Sibshops are for 7-12 year old brothers and/or sisters of individuals with Down syndrome or other special needs. They provide opportunities for brothers and sisters to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context. They provide a chance for siblings to meet other siblings who have a brother or sister with Down syndrome or other special needs, to share joys and concerns, problem solve, and have fun.
