“Social Sibs”

Sunshine Butterflies Siblings Program

Sunshine Butterflies provides support to all members of the family who are caring for a son or daughter with a disability and that includes the siblings.

Siblings of children with a disability, experience a range of emotional reactions, both positive and negative, which is why we have created a club exclusively for brothers and sisters of children who have special needs. Social Sibs is an informal support group that provides a social and recreational club to give siblings an opportunity to meet other siblings with similar circumstances in a fun, safe, casual and friendly environment.

“Social Sibs” will provide brothers and sisters the opportunity to;

  • Meet other brothers and sisters of children with special needs and build new friendships
  • Have fun without the guilt of knowing their sibling can’t always enjoy the same activity or pleasure
  • Talk about their feelings with others who really know what its like to have a sibling with a special needs
  • Learn and develop coping strategies for some of those difficult situations that they may encounter, such as teasing or embarrassment
  • Improve their self-esteem, increase their social interactions and begin to see their situation as normal

If you have a brother or sister with a disability, come and join the Sunshine Butterflies “Social Sibs” for some fun filled activities. 

Time: 10.00am – 2.00pm
Ages: 7 years – 12 years
Cost: $15 per child per session
