Spanish Sibshops in South Oklahoma City

Event date: 5/15/2018 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Export event

When:            Tuesday, May 15, 6pm - 8pm

Where:           St. Luke's Asbury United Methodist, 1320 SW 38th St. Oklahoma City

What:              Sibshops are opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with physical, developmental or intellectual disabilities or mental health concerns, to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context. The workshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters. Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some, a good thing, for others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in between.   Sibshops are 2-3 hour events open to school-aged children 5-15, generally held monthly during the school year, offering lively, recreational activities facilitated by trained volunteers.  Information and discussion activities are interspersed with fun games and age-appropriate programming.  Sibshops understand the key role siblings play in providing natural supports for brothers and sisters with special healthcare concerns throughout their life span.
