Sibshop offered to siblings ages 8-12

WisconSibs offers Sibshop for attendees who are 8-12 years old and have a sibling with developmental disabilities.

Sibshops are celebrations of the many contributions made by sisters and brothers of kids with special health or developmental needs.

This special Zoom Sibshop takes place Saturday, May 8 at 10:00 am. It is for kids ages 8-12 who have siblings with disabilities and have registered for the virtual Circles of Life conference.

At Sibshop kids will meet other kids who share the challenges and joys of having a sibling with disabilities. They will also get the opportunity to meet and talk with the amazing Matt Glowacki, the keynote speaker at Circles of Life. Of course, like all Sibshops, this one will be sprinkled with lots of fun stuff like games, scavenger hunts, and even prizes!
