SibsRule is an 8 week program for parents and siblings who share their life with a child or young person with a disability.


Program Overview

SibsRule allows siblings aged 8-12 years to have time dedicated just for them and provides a safe and supported environment to share experiences and strategies with other children. Your child will love to come. The feedback we have is overwhelmingly positive.

This program allows parents/carer to have the opportunity to learn about sibling relationships, family resilience and share knowledge and skills with other families.

SibsRule is delivered as a 2 programs in one. You will be broken up into two groups: a parent group; and a sibling group; with some joint group work between throughout.

The program consists of weekly themes. Topics that can be discussed within the group and taken away and shared within the family. Ensuring that the program has meaning to your family unit.

SibsRule will deliver specific content to each group that will provide opportunities for constructive discussions about strategies and concepts with, for and around the family member with disability and the family unit as a whole.
