Support for siblings
As every child is unique so are the family dynamics surrounding that child. Our experience has shown that support for siblings is also important and we have put together this page to offer sibling specific links which offer siblings opportunities to share, talk and meet other siblings.
Our local support groups can also also provide a great opportunity for siblings to meet with and connect with others, particularly as sessions are run through the school holidays.
We hope to add more information to this page when we can. If you know of any local support groups/events specific to siblings please contact us and let us know so we can add them here. Likewise if you have any quotes and photos for the siblings page do please get in touch.
CAAP was formed by a group of parents of children with additional needs, to support families to access activities during school holidays. They work hard to provide activities for children with disabilities and also sibling activities.
