Building for Kids

Join us for Sibshop at the Building for Kids!

What would it be like to use a robot to help you get ready for school? or make your lunch? or play with you after school? Siblings of children with disabilities ages 6-12 are invited to join this Sibshop and learn about robots and how they help us. Sibshop games, a craft, and snacks are all included for Sibs participating in Sibshop at the Building for Kids Children’s Museum.

In addition, each family will receive a free day-pass to use at the museum that afternoon until closing. (Supervision for Sibshop participants only provided from Noon – 3 pm. Families are responsible for other children. Museum closes at 4 pm.)

Cost:  $15/Sibshop participant
Registration required in advance.

JF Call OutAre you a sibling whois concerned about the day your parents no longer can care for your sibling?  Or you’ve become responsible for your sibling and are unsure about the future and need some answers?

For adults who have a sibling with developmental disabilities or long-term illnesses, the journey together is lifelong. You may already be in a care giving role or expect to in the future. This program helps you clarify your role, get the planning tools to move forward, and connect with other siblings and local resources that will change your future.

Journey Forward has one main goal— to help you as an adult sibling move forward with peace of mind. 

 

 

When you are finished with both workshop sessions, you will have a written document which describes your sibling’s desired future living arrangement, community role, and lifestyle preferences.  You will have a plan that includes practical directions and information for maintaining continuity in your sibling’s daily life and needed supports to achieve these outcomes.  Some call this peace of mind. 

This is the first session of a two-session program.  Adult siblings are encouraged to invite parents, siblings (including any with disabilities), and other family members as their guests. The program includes all materials and lunch for adult siblings and their guests (spouse, other siblings, parents, and any other significant members of their family or team) for both sessions.

If you wish to register yourself, your sibling, or your parents or you have questions about Journey Forward in general, contact us at the WisconSibs office.

S.P.A. (Sister are Pretty Awesom) Sibshop for girls and their moms
We are so excited to return to offering our popular SPA Sibshop! Being a sister of someone with unique abilities can be pretty awesome. But like Anna of Arendelle in the movie Frozen knows, it can also be pretty full of challenges, especially for sisters and moms, that can lead to health risks.

This Sibshop for girls is an opportunity to have fun exploring how sisters like Elsa and Anna, along with their Moms (or grandma, or big sister, aunt or grown up friend), can keep the challenges from overwhelming life.

Cost: $15/child (Moms are guests)
Registration required in advance. Space limited. To register, CLICK HERE!
