Sibling Support Group
The Cody Center offers a weekly sibling support group for brothers and sisters of children with autism and autism spectrum disorders. The group incorporates games, art projects and discussion in an upbeat and supportive atmosphere. It meets at the same time that the members' siblings are meeting in Social Skills and their parents are taking part in our Parent Support Workshop. The group is led by a social worker, Marlies Brandt.
