TEEN SIBLING GROUP
Are you a teen with a brother or sister who is living with A DISABILITY?
This is the group for you!
Do you want to meet other teens who understand how having a sibling with a disability can be fun and challenging at the same time?
This is a program for teens, ages 15-17, who have a sibling who is living with a disability. The goals of this group are to support teens around their common experiences, challenges, coping strategies, and to help teens in recognizing their own gifts and strengths. This is all done in a safe space with meaningful, age-appropriate activities and support from a trained Facilitator.
Group runs once per month, from October 2018 to May 2019 at Citizen Advocacy at 312 Parkdale Avenue.
“It has helped me to feel not as alone and to know that it is ok to say that I am frustrated with some of the issues I have to deal with.”
Registration is now open for the 2018-2019 season. The program runs one Wednesday a month from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. There are two separate blocks with four sessions each. You can register for one, or both blocks.
Reserve your spot by September 28, 2018.
“This group means a great deal to my son and, therefore, to my husband and I. We looked for years for a group that would allow our son to see that he wasn’t alone, that there were other people who understood, and could relate to, the feelings, the frustrations and the challenges that come with being the sibling of someone with special needs.”
