CliniSibs - Group Sibling Program
The CliniSibs program at CliniKids has been designed to provide a place where siblings of children with autism can meet to share their experiences and feel supported to learn new ways of coping.
Caring for the carer
Caring for a child with a developmental delay or autism can be both challenging and rewarding. It is important that carers in this situation prioritise their own wellbeing and practice self care so that they can continue to care for their child. The demands of life can often make this challenging but there are some simple ways to practice self care each day.
- Keep yourself healthy by eating well, exercising and getting as much sleep as possible.
- Create a support network. This can be your friends and family, but it may also include organisations within the community who can help.
