Supporting the brothers and sisters of kids with special needs
Our special guest, Shellie Léger, MSW MBA from Massachusetts General Hospital digs into the issues that affect the other members of the family. Shellie is a leader of the internationally acclaimed “Sibshops” program and brings both her experience and her dedication to the table to discuss how to help provide healthy balance for the siblings of kids who have Mito.
“Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so- good thing, and for many somewhere in between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another–if they are given a chance.”
Learn from Shellie what parents can do to support the brothers and sisters of chronically ill kids.
