DSConneX for Young Sibs is a DSNetwork support group for youth (ages 6-12 years old) who have a sibling with Down syndrome or other physical or developmental disabilities.
Brothers and sisters of individuals with Down syndrome or other disabilities have unique concerns, questions and experiences than other siblings. DSNetwork is proud to sponsor quarterly Sibshops to our younger brothers and sisters!
Sibshops follow a peer support and education model, and are a fabulous opportunity to provide participants with kid-friendly information and activities ranging from guest speakers, to tours, discussions, team building games, fun self-expression activities, and more!
