This event has already occurred!

The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute is proud to now offer Sibshops!

Sibshops provide brothers and sisters of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities opportunities to share and connect with peers who “get it.” Attending a Sibshop allows siblings a chance to meet one another in a relaxed setting. Children will have the opportunity to participate in fun activities such as “Dear Aunt Blabby,” and group discussions designed to help children express the joys and concerns of being a sibling of a child with special needs. Sibshops acknowledge that brothers and sisters of people with special needs, like their parents, may need support.
