What is a Sibshop?
Sibshops are celebrations of the many contributions made by sisters and brothers of kids with special health or developmental needs.
As a registered Sibshop of WisconSibs, Inc, this workshop for “typical” siblings ages 8-17 attending the conference provides lively, recreational, age-appropriate activities and relaxed discussions about the challenges and joys of having a sibling with disabilities.
PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE AND THEN COMPLETE A SIBSHOP REGISTRATION FORM (link will be live on Feb. 1st)

Quotes from past conferences:
“My child went last year and really enjoyed it.”
“I like that my child can connect with other children who understand what it’s like being a sibling.”
“My son has a lot of stress related to his sister and this helps him get it out with others who understand.”
“This is [my daughter’s] fourth time to attend Sibshop and she is very excited because she can share her own experiences having a brother with special needs.”
PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited to 35 youth and you must register your child for them to be able to participate during the Circles of Life Conference.
