Sibling Group


Siblings of our clients bring their own unique experience of growing up with a brother or sister with special needs.

Our Sibling Group, run by music therapists Angela and Tori, is a place where our clients’ siblings can share their experiences, explore the instruments that their brothers and sisters enjoy each week and have fun making music. 

The October sibling programme, suggested for ages 4-10, will meet on the 10th and 11th October, from 9:30-11:30am. The price is $60 for the first sibling and $40 for each additional child which covers the cost of both sessions (children are expected to attend both days).
