What are we offering? “Sibling Success” is best described as opportunities for brothers and sisters ages 7-14 years old of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context.
They reflect an agency's commitment to the well-being of the family member most likely to have the longest-lasting relationship with the person with special needs. The model that we use as our guide intersperses information and discussion activities with new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range). These opportunities are as fun and rewarding for the people who host them as they are for the participants.
Sibling Success seeks to provide siblings with opportunities for peer support. Because it was designed (primarily) for school-age children, peer support is provided within a lively, recreational context that emphasizes a kids’-eye-view. This is not therapy, group or otherwise, although their effect may be therapeutic for some children.
Sessions will be held the last Sunday of each month from 3-5pm (starting in February) and are graciously being hosted by Jenkins Preschool Academy in Porters Neck. As we gather more participants the length, frequency and number of sessions may change and we will provide updates as soon as possible if and when they become available.
