The vocational services your child receives while in school are different than the vocational services available after graduation. Who provides these services? When can my child access the services? What are the differences? How can I help my child prepare for them? Please join us as Adam Kubler, the director of The Arc of New Jersey's Project HIRE, one of the largest providers of Supported Employment to adults in New Jersey, answers these questions. In addition, the webinar will include tips and guidance regarding the vocational services adults can receive in New Jersey.

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Sibshops provide brothers and sisters of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities opportunities to share and connect with peers who “get it.” Attending a Sibshop allows siblings a chance to meet one another in a relaxed setting. Children will have the opportunity to participate in fun activities such as “Dear Aunt Blabby,” and group discussions designed to help children express the joys and concerns of being a sibling of a child with special needs. Sibshops acknowledge that brothers and sisters of people with special needs, like their parents, may need support.

  • Sibshop events are free.
  • Open to children 8-12 years old.
  • Click below to pre-register.
  • After you complete the pre-registration form, you will receive a call to confirm your child is registered. Your child is not registered until you receive this call.

While Sibshops aren’t therapy sessions, they can be therapeutic for some children.
