Sibling support – Sibshop Workshop

26 November, 2023 @ 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

We have organised 2 Sibling Support Workshops for our Branch.
Saturday 25th of November 2023 in Drogheda Presbyterian Church from 2.00 – 4.30pm.
Sunday 26th of November 2023 in Athboy Convent Community Centre from 2.00 – 4.30pm
The Workshops are carried out by Liz Fitzpatrick & Linda Foley who are both Nurses working with children with an Intellectual Disability. They are qualified Sibshop Facilitators and run Sibshop workshops which are afternoons of fun for siblings of children with special needs.
As well as having lots of fun it provides a great opportunity for siblings to get together and chat about some of the difficulties and the positives of having a sibling with Special Needs.
The workshops are for our member’s Siblings aged between 7 & 13 and the members with Down Syndrome should be over 2.5 years old so that the Siblings can see and understand that their brother or sister has special needs.
These Sibshops are free to our members.
Please reply to secretarydslm@gmail.com or text Brendan at 083 8972044 to register your intention to attend.
Place on each workshop is limited to 12 and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
