Kids with special needs require a unique kind of attention and care from their parents and other people surrounding them. These children have different health conditions that require a special kind of treatment in order to ensure their well-being. For kids who have siblings with special needs, they must learn how to extend their patience, support, and love.
The Edmond Sibshop is a workshop targeted toward school children who live with special needs siblings. The event will not only help raise awareness of how to properly deal with their siblings, but it will also be a celebration of their effort and commitment to caring for their siblings. The workshop will be full of lots of fun games and activities, including pedal-to-metal games, arts, and crafts.
The Sibshop will be held on two different days, October 5th and November 2nd, at the Edmond Public Schools Special Services Building. It will last from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon and is open to kids between the ages of 6 and 13, who have a brother or sister with disabilities.
