Don Meyer, Director of the Sibling Support Project, will be presenting about supporting siblings of people with Autism and other related special needs.  He will share what siblings would like parents and service providers to know, and how to support them effectively.  In the afternoon, Don will facilitate a panel of siblings, who will share their experiences of having a sibling with Autism.  The presentation is geared for adult siblings with a brother or sister who has Autism or for parents who have a child with Autism or other related special needs.  In addition, a day camp is offered for younger children.  During the day camp, a short sibshop will be run with the siblings.  In addition, other entertainment will be provided for the children.  Lunch and snacks will be provided for all attendees.
