Let's Chat about Financial Planning for our Sibs (SIBS Only)!

  • Jun 28, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Siblings for Adult Siblings is a support and information group for the brothers and sisters of individuals with special needs.  It is not a group for parents.


If you are a parent please find meeting opportunities at
http://www.php.com/support/adult-children-developmental-disabilities.


Who can attend? Individuals in their late teens and up who have brothers and sisters with special needs.

What about parents?: This group was created for the sole purpose of providing a safe environment for the siblings of individuals with special needs to share their experiences.This particular group is not open to parents.

We are a unique group of individuals: the life-long friends and companions, and sometimes caregivers of our brothers and sisters.

This group will offer a circle of support to people with similar past and present experiences of growing up with a brother or sister with special needs. We will discuss such topics as: “What does our future hold?” "What do my parents expect?" "What am I able to do to help and still have my own life?" The group will discuss the issues that siblings face as our parents age.

We meet the fourth Saturday of the month from 10:30-12:00 in various locations throughout the South Bay.

    Hi All,

    I appreciate the recent surge in interest among parents who want to attend the Meetups for the Adult Sibs group. While PHP has many information and support groups specifically for parents, this is one of only two groups that are specific to the brothers and sisters of individuals with special needs. As such, it is not open to parents.

    Thank you for your understanding and I would encourage you to look into the other groups we have available for parents: http://www.php.com/support/adult-children-developmental-disabilities.

    Warm regards,

    Zoe
