Beyond the Classroom - Sibshops

At Vermont South Special School we offer siblings an opportunity to meet together and celebrate the contributions made by their brothers or sisters with special needs.

Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in-between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another — if they are given a chance.

Sibshops are a spirited mix of group games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends, and discussion activities.
