The MU Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders will host two “Sibshops” in October. “Sibshops” are programs designed specifically for siblings of children with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
The recreational events allow siblings of children with special needs to make new friends and share their concerns and stories about their relationships with their siblings.
A Sibshop for siblings ages 10 to 16 will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Thompson Center. Another Sibshop will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 31, at the Thompson Center for siblings ages 6 to 12.
The events are free. Registration forms can be found at the Thompson Center’s Web site.
