For young children growing up is hard enough, especially where there is a sibling whose special needs require a great deal of time and attention. Sometimes siblings feel alone and left out, as we have seen happen over the years at Any Baby Can. Because of this, we have a Sibling Support Group.
Sibling Support Group is facilitated by a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in both Bexar and Comal county.
For each child to gain an understanding of different disabilities and chronic illnesses affecting their siblings.
For each child to see that they are not alone. Children learn that others have siblings with disabilities and this validates and supports their feelings and opinions.
To use art activities and book readings to help kids explore feelings they may experience, such as resentment, jealousy, guilt, anger happiness, loneliness, pride, love and embarrassment.
To help kids develop self-esteem and skills to solve problems they may have with peers, their siblings, or at school or home.
Most of all, to have fun!
Groups only meet from September through July of every year
