Our Services

Sibling Support


Children at Risk has a mandate to provide services and supports for not only the diagnosed ASD child, but for their family, as well. One support we have always felt very strongly about is our Sibling Support Groups. However, Siblings seem to have very busy schedules these days and we have had difficulty pulling a weekly group. Two years ago we changed our format of weekly meetings for a 1-Day Workshop - with rave reviews! For this Winter, we are once again looking to offer a Workshop. We hope that, even if your Sibling has other commitments usually, they can set aside this one time to attend this valuable and needed support! It will not be the same as a weekly meeting where the siblings meet each other and establish longer-term relationships, but the same principles that are applied to the weekly meetings will be covered.

We will be offering 2 groups - for Younger and Older Siblings
Cost will be $35 per child - includes supplies and lunch.

  • Younger Group: Ages 5-7 – Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 10 AM to 2 PM
  • Older Group: Ages 8-13+ - Saturday, March 22, 2014 – 10 AM to 3 PM

There might be some flexibility on the ages, with a maximum of 12 participants per workshop. We may also do another split of ages and a 3rd group depending on the registration.

WHERE: Children at Risk Offices, 235 Donald Street, Room 209.
