Sibshop is a place for brothers and sisters (ages 7-12) of children with Autism to meet with other siblings. It is a relaxed environment that gives the siblings a place to talk about their lives while playing games and getting to know each other.
We welcome Jennifer Wiles, MA LMHC, BC-DMT. Director of Children's Services at Beth Israel Lahey Health at Home. Jennifer will be kicking off our September Speaker series: Grieving and Autism. The pandemic has created many challenges and emotions that individuals with autism and those that love them may find difficult to understand and manage. Jennifer will speak about: What is grief; How we see it show up in children, teens and adults; and How to support someone who is grieving.
Help us raise funds for the Autism Alliance by donating. We have partnered with the Flutie Foundation for more than 20 years, creating vacation programs, special events and family grants. Your support will help us continue to provide these life-changing services. (Be sure to scroll down to see our TEAM MEMBERS)
As leaders around the world are figuring out how and when to send children back to school, there is also a lot of discussion about how that will look. There will be some changes that will be different for our students/children. This book talks about some things that might be different when kids go back. As we have learned throughout this pandemic, nothing is certain. So, the book talks in language like "might" or "probably" since we just don't know for sure what things will look like. Link includes many different languages.
