Sibshops is a terrific book! Don Meyer integrates his extraordinary wisdom and experience with the growing body of research about the relationships between sisters and brothers when one has a disability. Then by including many very thoughtful details and sensitive explanations and examples, Don shows how caring parents and professionals can create Sibshops and continue his pioneering work in local communities everywhere. --Co-Founder, Exceptional Parent Magazine
