Autism Sibling Support Project
Siblings of children with autism are in the position to have a significant impact on the life of their brother or sister with autism for many reasons. The sibling relationship is likely to be the longest lasting relationship in the family over the course of the lifetime. Siblings, with the exception of the child’s parents, will generally spend more time with a child with autism than almost any other person. For these reasons, it is extremely important that siblings of children with autism have access to information and support programs that will help them in their role as a sibling.
Through the Autism Sibling Support project, the Autism Society of Wisconsin plans to hold at least 6 Sibshops throughout Wisconsin, in partnership with WisconSibs. A Sibshop is a workshop model developed by Don Meyer that offers peer support and education to brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs, within a recreational context. The Autism Sibling Support will also provide information to parents about supporting siblings through a newsletter article, webinar, and distribution of resources.
The Autism Society of Wisconsin’s mission is to improve the lives of all affected by autism. We’re excited to extend our support services to siblings through this new project.
