Brothers and Sisters
July 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDTFREE
SESSION INFO: Growing up with a brother or sister with a disability involves some very strong feelings. The usual stresses, joys and fears experienced by brothers and sisters can be intensified in families where a son or daughter has a disability. This workshop will focus upon some of the common issues which can arise. Parents will be encouraged to develop strategies for assisting with social situations. Other goals of the workshop are to enable parents to help their “typical” children to see the benefit of having a brother or sister with a disability and to provide parents with ideas and resources for having fun with all their children.
Family Support Institute of BC (FSI) is a provincial not-for-profit society committed to supporting families who have a family member with a disability. FSI is unique in Canada and the only grass roots family to family organization that has a broad volunteer base.
FSI SUPPORTS AND SERVICES ARE FREE TO ANY FAMILY
