Sibling Support Groups
Siblings of children with special needs often have a lot of questions and concerns, and FRA groups provide an opportunity for children to safely explore these feelings with others in similar situations. Monthly group sessions are fun and combine art, storytelling and role playing as tools for talking about differences and solving challenges. Groups are in part possible by the generosity of Monmouth Park Charities and the M.Bell Family, and there is no charge for participation.
