Expressive Arts Therapist and Licenced Sibshop Programme of Events

Sibshops are best described as opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context.  Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of children with special needs.  Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many somewhere in between.  

If you are interested in siblings attending these workshops please email  jacintawalsh@ireland.com with details of names and ages of children and your contact details.
