Sibling Support Program
On Saturday, January 25, 2014, siblings of children with disabilities will have the chance to have a day that’s all about them. The Virginia Institute of Autism is teaming up with Charlottesville Parks & Recreation to host a one-day Sibling Support Program. Our goal is to provide siblings with opportunities for peer support within a lively, recreational context that emphasizes a kids’-eye-view. We’ll intersperse information and discussion activities with new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), cooking activities, and special guests who may teach participants mime, how to juggle or, in the case of one guest artist who has cerebral palsy, how to paint by holding a toothbrush in your mouth
Who: Siblings (ages 10-14) of children with disabilities
Where: Carver Recreation Center
When: January 25, 2014 10am-3pm
