A fun, in-person gathering for siblings of children with special needs

Options & Advocacy is hosting an in-person SibShops on Jan. 8 from 9 – 11:30 a.m.

This event kicks off the new season of SibShops, which are usually held the first Saturday of each month at Options & Advocacy, 365 Millennium Drive, Suite A, in Crystal Lake.

The Sibshops group is for 8- to 14-year-old siblings of kids with special needs.

Sibshops are lively, engaging celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. They are a spirited mix of new games (designed to be unique, off-beat and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends and discussion activities. They are not therapy, although their effect may be therapeutic for some children.

SibShops will be meeting in-person this season and following the same COVID-19 protocols as most schools (masks required, temperature readings, etc.) unless state and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines change.
