About this event

This is a support group for kids/teens (7 years - high school seniors) that have a brother or sister with disabilities/special health concerns. This is an opportunity to meet peers in a fun filled day of activities, where they can explore joys and concerns of having a sibling with these special needs and how others handle similar situations.

While providing and receiving the peer support, they are empowered to find ways to cope with the challenges they face regularly. This group also gives resources and tools to help them better deal with situations involving their sibling, as well as focus on strengthening the connection and well-being of the family member that will most likely have the longest-lasting relationship with a special needs child/sibling.

There is a $5 registration fee due at the event to cover lunch. Please make checks or money orders payable to Easterseals Arc. Registration fees are non-refundable. Scholarships available upon request. T-shirts are available for a $5 fee in children’s sizes: medium (10/12) or large (14/16), and adult sizes: small, medium, or large.

For more information, call Sarah Savage: (260) 456-4534 extension 218 or by email at: ssavage@esarc.org
