Has Social Activities/Day Program
Koorana’s Sibs Club is a group activity and therapeutic support program for children aged 7-12 years who have a sibling with a disability. Children growing up with a sibling with a disability frequently take on carer responsibilities and may have to miss out on age-appropriate experiences due to limited family resources. Sibs Club creates a safe place for children to explore their own interests, have fun experiences, make friends with children in similar circumstances, process the emotions associated with having a sibling with additional needs and negotiate their own place in their families’ lives with increased autonomy and confidence.

The program offers a suite of support services for siblings and parents of a child with additional needs, including:

- weekly group activities delivered by qualified group leaders,
- emotional support,
- excursions and outings,
- an annual inclusive camp experience and,
- creative communication workshops for the entire family.

The aim is of the program is to support participating children by nurturing their individuality, building social connections, validating their emotions and fostering their resilience so they may flourish in family environments that may at times present with a unique set of challenges.

Sibs Club meets weekly in Belmore during the school term. The program is free of charge but additional costs may arise for activities and the annual camp, Please contact our friendly team on 02 8321 9600 to find out more.

How we work

Bespoke Programming

We offer to work in close partnership with you to tailor a holistic therapy program that specifically meets the needs and priorities of your child and family. Our mobile team of specialists will work with you in any location of your choice including your home, the community or one of Koorana’s local onsite clinics. All of our programs are designed to nurture full participation in a range of social environments for children and young people aged 0-18.

Natural Settings for Maximum Impact  

At Koorana we empower children to learn and develop new skills within their natural environments, such the home, school, sports clubs, play dates or any other setting that is important to your child. We will support you with strategies and techniques you can apply in everyday life to continuously boost your child’s development. Koorana’s approach thus maximises hours of therapy by embedding learning in your child’s typical routines and activities.

Focus on Outcomes

Our team can support your child to:

  • progress communication and language fluency to maximise learning and achievement;
  • boost social skills such as sharing and turn taking to nurture friendships, fun and play;
  • increase concentration in order to participate effectively in educational and social activities;
  • cultivate their ability to manage emotions;
  • maximise independence in self-care tasks such as bathing, dressing and eating;
  • improve mobility, strength and balance.

Flexibility

The duration of any bespoke program is determined by the priorities and desired outcomes you have identified for your child to ensure you reach your goals and milestones in an appropriate length of time.
