Kid Connection

November 9 at 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm EST

Have typically developing children ages 8-12 who need something just for them?

Kid Connection in the Midlands returns to the Family Connection Columbia office.

Kid Connection provides a safe space for typically developing children to gain support and express concerns over the unique experiences of having a sibling with a disability or special healthcare need.

At Kid Connection, participants will:
● Meet others their age who have a sibling with a disability or special healthcare need.
● Talk with others who “get it” about the good (and sometimes not so good!) parts of having a sibling with special healthcare needs.
● Play interactive games and participate in craft activities.
● Learn more about disabilities and the services that those with disabilities receive.
● Have fun!

How long and often is Kid Connection? The two-hour workshop is held once a month.

Ready to Register Your Child?

Just email Mila Conway at [email protected].

Please provide: Your contact information (name, email, phone number, home address), child’s name, child’s age, any food allergies/preferences that the participant may have and their sibling’s special healthcare need.
To ensure the quality of the program, this session can take 15 participants. The session is first come, first served. If your child cannot participate this month, watch for the email about the September program.
