What are the Benefits of Family Support?
Family Support offers a coordinated access point to guide you through the “system”. Our helpful and knowledgeable Family Support Workers are qualified to offer advice based on individual family needs.
They connect regularly with other professionals in the community such as teachers, early childhood educators and program providers. As a member of these strong community networks, Family Support Workers can effectively advocate with families.
Family Support offers Sibling Workshops called Sibshops -These workshops are designed specifically for children and youth (aged 6-8 and 9-12 years old) who have a sibling with special needs. They provide an opportunity to meet other brothers and sisters in a casual atmosphere and to participate in recreational and therapeutic activities. Sibshops also provide an opportunity to share stories, feelings, concerns and experiences with peers who truly understand the ups and downs of life with a sibling with developmental or physical challenges. For more information on our Sibshops – click here.
