Sibling Tree Adds New Support Group for High School Students

Posted on Friday, October 03, 2014

Sibling Tree Adds New Support Group for High School Students           ASBC is excited to announce that Sibling Tree, the free monthly support group for kids who have a brother or sister with autism or other special needs, will now offer an additional support group geared specifically toward high school-aged kids who have a sibling on the spectrum.
Sandra Tucker, founder of Sibling Tree and the group’s facilitator, is the sister of a young man with autism herself and
started these sorts of support groups so siblings might have a safe place to talk and be understood.

The high school group will be developed based on what the siblings want, but discussion will include the members’ experiences of having a brother or sister with special needs, how to be advocates for their siblings and how to be involved in the community. Like all Sibling Tree groups, this one will continually evolve to meet the participants’ needs.

The group for high school students will meet at the same location and on the same day as the other Sibling Tree group in Boulder. Upcoming dates are Saturday, October 11, and Saturday, November 8. In December, there will be a sensory-friendly holiday party for the entire family; date to be announced soon.
