Miss Georgia to Appear at Special Needs Workshop
A Sibshop facilitator workshop and one just for brothers and sisters of those with special needs will be held in Savannah, Georgia on February 15 - 16 with a special visitation by Miss Georgia 2012, Leighton Jordan, on Friday morning.
Author and speaker Don Meyer, director of the Sibling Support Project and creator of Sibshops - lively programs designed just for young brothers and sisters of kids with special needs, will conduct the workshop. Don has conducted hundreds of workshops for siblings, fathers, and grandparents of children with special needs and trainings on the Sibshop model throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, Iceland, England, Italy, New Zealand, and Japan.
Sibshops facilitator training will be offered on Friday, February 15, from 9 am – 3:30 pm and Saturday, February 16, from 9 am – 3:30 pm. The workshop is designed so educators can attend only one day, but to be approved as a SibShop Facilitator, candidates must attend both days.
The workshop for siblings age 8-13 of kids with special needs will be held on Saturday, February 16, from 10 am – 2 pm.
All workshops will be held at Chatham Academy: 4 Oglethorpe Professional Blvd., Savannah, GA and CEUs are approved for LPCs, MFTs, and LCSWs. Limited scholarships are available on a first come, first serve basis.
