The Siblings’ Support Group is for children between the ages of 8 and 12 years, who have a brother or sister with an autistic spectrum condition.
The group provides a great opportunity for children to explore their feelings and talk to other siblings in the same situation. It also offers a whole range of fun activities in a supportive, friendly and confidential environment. We usually offer a parent workshop on supporting siblings to accompany these sessions.
When does it meet?
The Siblings’ Group runs once a year usually in either the Spring or Summer terms. Each session lasts for two hours and they are held across eight evenings.
Siblings of children/adults with an autistic spectrum condition may attend the course. The course is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL to siblings.
So, what happens in these groups?
- We help each other to explain our feelings about our brothers and sisters to others
- We discuss good times and difficult times with them
- We talk about what it’s like to have autism/Asperger’s syndrome/P.D.A.
- And being treated differently from our brothers and sisters
- We talk about the future
