The Down Syndrome Connection is planning on putting together a sibling support group in the month of August. The group would be open to siblings of all special needs children. It would be a three week (4 session) program where siblings learn how to cope with feelings such as sadness, guilt, embarrassment and anger. There would be a check in and time for each child to share and focus on an art project related to that feeling.
The program would be conducted by Terese Ghilarducci, a licensed MFT and School Counselor who has been working with children with and without dis?abilities for over 17 years. Terese is a long time friend of the Down Syndrome Connection and a member of their Advisory Board.
Sessions would be held August 4th,6th,11th, and 18th. Times will be determined based on interest and availability. Cost: $25 per child per class or $100 for the four week session
If this is something your family would be interested in please contact the Connection at 925-362-8660
or email Marianne at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide number of siblings, their ages and times
that work best for you. You can learn more about the Down Syndrome Connection here.
