Sibling Support Group will meet during the winter of 2023 from 4:00PM – 5:30PM each Thursday beginning March 9th and continuing to March 30th. This group is for neuro-typical individuals ages 8-12 who have a sibling with autism. The group will focus on support, making new friendships, and discussing how having a sibling with autism can affect the family.
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 a weekly 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 assignment in Group.
Any interested siblings must complete a Project Rex intake with either James Truelove or Jennifer Warthen prior to attending the first Group meeting. Families do not need to have prior history with Project Rex to participate.
