sibling groups

Children with Sepcial Needs Guernsey

Wigwam recognises that siblings of children with special needs can face issues that other children may not.
“Growing up with someone with special needs can be very rewarding and very difficult at the same time. When someone in the family needs a huge amount of help and support, this can have a negative impact on other family members. The biggest issue for child siblings is not getting enough attention from their parents” (www.sibs.org.uk)
