Support group for siblings of children with disabilities

We are happy to inform you that, as from 24 October, our group of support for siblings of children with disabilities led by psychologist Alda Pallais has restarted the meetings.

The group is intended for 6 children aged between 7 and 10 years old and meetings are held in Gressan [Aosta Valley]. The group is an important resource for children. There is a comparison, understanding and support. The children read books, speak, draw, but also play. In the background, there are always their emotions.

During the 2018/2019 school year we made 7 group meetings (one per month from November to May) plus 20 individual sessions for parents and children.

Support Group for Siblings – “We Are All Extraordinary” Project

The project proposal arises from the request of parents aware of the difficulties that their children go through in everyday experience.

The relationship between brothers is a special one, and it is considered by the literature as a particular long-term relationship, for which there is no possibility of annulment. This bond has important functions such as covenants to confront adults, conflicts and unions that help to grow and differentiate in the world.

Siblings live a complex fraternal experience, go through strong and often ambivalent feelings within their family. The proposal of a laboratory / group that takes this into account, represents an opportunity to offer a shared space in which siblings can tell their experience, supporting the emotions that appear without judgment, as well as build a relational background in which they can recognize their own path of growth.

Group objectives

  • Build a sharing experience
  • Identify siblings’ resources within and outside the family
  • Acquire strategies for a better adaptation to the situation of a fragile children at home
  • Share positive experiences and concerns


6 children of preferably homogeneous age.
