By popular demand, we’re announcing new, later dates for our Sibling Support Group for individuals ages 8-14 who have siblings with autism!

The four group sessions will still take place Thursdays from 9:00am – 10:15am, but the new dates are as follows: July 14th, July 21st, July 28th, and August 4th, 2016.

Families, this means that you haven’t missed your chance for sibling support; there’s still time to sign up!

To register, please call 843-792-9162 to schedule an intake.

The group will focus on support, making new friendships, and discussing how having a sibling with autism can affect the family.

Group participants will learn about autism and its challenges; group activities will help individuals to better understand what it can be like to live with a specific learning or physical challenge.

Each week, participants will receive homework assignments. Siblings will have discussions and complete exercises with their sibling with autism or with their parents related to the weekly topic. We will then review the homework in Group.

This program includes a concurrent, mandatory parent Group. The Group location is: MUSC IOP 5 South, 67 President Street, Charleston, SC 29425.

Any interested siblings must complete a Project Rex intake with either James Truelove or Jennifer Warthen prior to attending the first Group meeting on Thursday, July 14th. Families do not need to have prior history with Project Rex to participate.

Medicaid and most private insurances are accepted; intakes are required to bill for insurance. There is a discount for self-pay.

To register, please call 843-792-9162 to schedule an intake.

Once the intake is complete, contact administrative assistant Lavinia Bowens at (843) 792-0037 to confirm attendance in the Group series. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to each Group meeting for sign in and registration.
