Our social events are designed to serve as epic events for the entire family. While the themes may change from month to month, “Autism Unity in the Community: Games, Grooves & Guidance” will offer:

  • A social game of bingo for autistic people ages 14 and older—facilitated by paid professional volunteers—allowing autistics to socialize without their parents or siblings.
  • An opportunity for siblings to talk about shared experiences while also enjoying a fun Zumba fitness dance class in which siblings interact with each other, creating a celebratory sense of siblings connecting.
  • A panel of experts in the areas of medical, legal, workforce, education, and independent living transitions where parents and caregivers can discuss the resources and transition services they need.


Auturity is a nonprofit organization that fills a crucial gap in services for autistic youth and adults as they transition into adulthood.

Super Sibshops

Super Sibshops

Super Sibshops!

It is time for our super siblings to have the support they deserve in order to live their best life. Often siblings do not realize the power of connecting with other siblings until they experience it.

Offering Sibshops in Southwest Atlanta. Sibshops are lively celebrations of the many contributions made by the brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. They acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many somewhere in between. They reflect the belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another, if they are given the chance. Sibshops are offered to Sibs 8 to 17 years of age.


When a child becomes ill, the entire family is affected. Sibshops provide support and guidance to siblings of children with special medical or developmental needs. Siblings are encouraged to share the challenges and celebrate the joys with brothers and sisters in similar situations.

Sibshops combine information and discussion activities with games, art projects and more. It is also an opportunity for siblings to share the challenges and celebrate the joys with brothers and sisters in similar situations

Sibshops are run by a team of people who have professional and, in some cases, personal understanding of the impact a child’s illness or disability can have on family members. Equally important, they all have great kid skills! Both Sibshops sometimes have “junior facilitators” who are sibs in their later teen years. Jeniece Stewart is the founder of Special Needs Siblings, mother of 7, and coordinates the program.

Sibshops take place 2nd Sunday of the month during the school year, groups have different times based on grade.

Sibshops are held at Prime Theory Wellness, 2312 Benjamin E. Mays Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30311

BIPOC Mental Health Roundtable

BIPOC Mental Health Roundtable

BIPOC Mental Health Roundtable

Special Needs Siblings is excited to join forces with Pantherum Marketing and The Prime Theory Company to introduce the BIPOC Mental Health Roundtable Series.
An estimated 26% of Americans ages 18 and older — about 1 in 4 adults — suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. We know that these numbers have steadily increased during the pandemic. Additionally, the BIPOC community is disproportionately receiving less medical assistance to combat these life threatening issues.⁣
We will host a panel of professionals, advocates and individuals with a wealth of experience in Mental Health that will include a live Q&A open to the public to provide resources and much more!⁣
