Founded by Don Meyer, a pioneer in the sibling movement, the Sibshop model is dedicated to the life-long concerns of brothers and sisters of people with special health, developmental, and mental health concerns. There are currently over 320 Sibshops worldwide, including one right here at Cook Children's in Fort Worth, Texas. To learn more about the history of Sibshops and what they offer check out siblingsupport.org.

It's a chance for us to celebrate siblings for who they are and all they do. Click here to read a personal account from Cook Children's SibShop Workshop.
