Sibling Spotlight is a specially designed program for kids of all ages who all have one thing in common. They each have a sibling touched by autism or other special needs. The goal of the program is to provide a healthy support system and coping skills through fun and engaging activities that ultimately help them navigate this complicated journey. This is a monthly program where young people come together in a fun and safe environment to interact with peers, mentors and program facilitators.
- Kids ages 6 through 11 years old are enrolled as participants
- Kids ages 12 through 18 years old participate in the program as sibling mentors and work under the direction of the program facilitator, Roni Gross, as part of the Sibling Spotlight leadership team
- Attendance of 80% or better is expected so that kids have a consistent opportunity to build peer relationships
Program is limited to 25 kids. While we are currently full for the 2018-19 session, we do have a wait list.
