We kicked off April with another fantastic Sibshop’s! Many thanks to our Sibshop staff and families for providing 
unforgettable sibling experiences at our workshops. Sibshops are events for siblings of children with neuro-diverse needs. They incorporate play and discussion based activities, providing a safe space for siblings to build confidence, navigate challenges of living with siblings with disabilities, make new friends, and explore their unique role within their families. Don’t miss our next meet up on June 10th!

Kids todo List App

This is a great app for building a visual schedule to help with sequencing and routines. The app has options for using clip art photos of common places and actions as well as an option for taking your own photos to use as aids.

The Neurodiversity Podcast talks with leaders in the fields of psychology, education, and beyond, about positively impacting neurodivergent people. Our goal is to reframe differences that were once considered disabilities or disorders, promote awareness of this unique population, and improve the lives of neurodivergent and high-ability people.
School Psyched Podcast is a bi-weekly podcast by school psychologists because none of us is as skilled as all of us. Come join the conversation!


Here are what our Sib’s are saying:
“Sibshops is my favorite place in the world

“It was so fun! I want to stay all day”
