With the exception of mothers, siblings spend more time with children who have special needs than any other family member. The sibling relationship is the longest-lasting relationship in the family.
For this reason, the Midstate Region has conducted Sibsday events for over twenty years as a way to recognize and celebrate the unique role siblings play in the life of their brother or sister with special needs. Sibsday events are held quarterly and include a wide variety of interactive and team building games to help the children get to know each other and have fun. Events also include a time for sharing the joys, frustrations and challenges of having a sibling with a special need.
We are looking for more participants in order to re-start this group. If you are interested in learning more, please contact our office. The Midstate Region Sibsday events are open to children ages 7 – 12 years who have a sibling with a disability living in Stearns, Benton, Morrison or Todd counties.
