Event Details

 Sault Ste. Marie February Sibshop 

 Tuesday, March 27th 2018 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Centennial Library 

This is for siblings ages 8-13

Sibshops provide brothers and sister peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting.

For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of their loving concern for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has a disability.

However, for the children and youth who attend them, Sibshops are pedal-to-the-metal events where they will:

  • Meet other sibs (usually for the first time);
  • Have fun;
  • Talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs with others who “get it”;


Atelier fratrie (Sibshops) à Sault Ste. Marie en février 


 La mardi 27 mars 2018, de 18 h à 20 h, à la bibliothèque du Centenaire

Cet atelier s’adresse aux frères et sœurs âgés de 8 à 13 ans

Les ateliers fratrie ont pour but d’offrir un soutien par les pairs aux frères et sœurs d’une personne qui vit avec un handicap et de leur présenter de l’information dans une ambiance dynamique et récréative.

Pour les adultes qui les animent et pour les organismes qui les parrainent, les ateliers fratrie témoignent de leur intérêt affectueux pour les membres de la famille qui auront les relations les plus durables avec une personne handicapée.


Mais pour les enfants et les adolescents qui y assistent, les ateliers fratrie sont des activités très stimulantes durant lesquelles ils pourront :

  • Rencontrer d’autres frères et sœurs (habituellement pour la première fois);
  • Avoir du plaisir;
  • Discuter, avec d’autres enfants ou ados dans la même situation, des bons et des moins bons côtés

NOTE: Supervision of children/youth at this Social Learning Opportunity is the sole responsibility of parents/guardians and caregivers; childcare will not be provided.

 Due to allergies and sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, aftershave, or scented products such as hairspray or lotion.


This event is sponsored by Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme, in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Children & Youth Services and Autism Ontario Sault Ste. Marie Chapter

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's it.


2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?
No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.


3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?
Almost all of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.


4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?
