DSA of DE 2020 Sibling Program
The DSA of DE is going to offer a sibling workshop in 2020, details below. This is a program for siblings of individuals with Down syndrome ages 6 and through adulthood. The program will be lead by trained instructors and only siblings are allowed in attendance, parents and individuals with Down syndrome are not included in this workshop. Please fill out this interest form if you or your child is interested in the program. Brothers and sisters of those with Down syndrome tend to be compassionate, understanding, wonderful people. But we also know that being the brother or sister of someone with Down syndrome can have its tough times, too! These workshops will guide brothers and sisters through questions like “What is Down syndrome?”; “What do I do if I’m jealous of my brother or sister with Down syndrome?”; or “What will my brother’s or sister’s future look like?”
Workshops provide the opportunity for a lot of concerns to be addressed and feelings to be validated. Brothers and sisters will learn they are not alone in their experiences, while gathering some good strategies for how to cope with some difficult times with their brother or sister. It’s a time to learn, grow, and celebrate our community of brothers and sisters!
