Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is aimed at parents of children with special needs, adult siblings, and professionals who work with families. It is highly accessible, informative, and a pleasure to read. The text is interspersed with cartoon drawings and pictures that add considerably to the general sparkle of the whole work. It is overall positive, optimistic, and inspiring. I want to organize a Sibshop tomorrow! --Journal of Pediatric Psychology

Sibshops are fun, and a whole lot more! --Newsletter of Seattle Childrens Hospital and Medical Center

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

Format: Paperback
This book provides a much needed platform for people who have siblings with special needs. It also serves as a manifesto for how you, too can set up such a workshop for people to share their experiences.

This is an excellent and empowering book that helps address the needs of siblings. I recommend this one together with Donald J. Meyers' book, "Views From Our Shoes."

Format: Paperback
This book provides wonderful ideas for activities that certified Sibshop facilitators can use to provide the brothers and sisters of children with developmental disabilities opportunities to have fun, be kids, make friends and talk about the ups and downs of having a "special" sibling. Every organization serving children with special needs should offer a Sibshop - it is a tremendous source of family support.

Highly recommend this book to amyone working with special needs individuals. This book focuses not on the individual but his/her siblings. It is SOOOOOoooo important to acknowledge these siblings as active participants in the care and overal lives of special needs individuals. This book does a great job at defining activities to help engage this population. Gives you everythign you need to host your own little "sibshop." Pick this book up...you'll be glad you did.
