The team at Sibs have organised a special online workshop to help the siblings of people with learning disabilities learn a new way to keep in touch with their brother or sister.

Ipad displaying the following text Online workshop for adult siblings of people with learning disabilities Learn how to use a book creator Mon 22nd Feb 7pm to 8pm
The website explains the event will involve:
Ray will take us through how to use an app called ‘Book Creator’. You’ll see examples of different things it can do and will have the chance to ask questions.

The session will be held online.

How can the app help me?

Book Creator let’s you make an interactive book, with colours, text and images. You can add your own videos, sound effects, speech, songs, noises or web links. It’s colourful and uncomplicated to use.

You don’t have to create a whole book (but you can if you like!). You can make a couple of quick pages to let your brother/sister know about your week. It’s like an interactive letter.

You can send a page or two as often as you like, or if your brother/sister is able to you can create stories together and send them back and forth.
For more details on the event, and how to register, visit this Sibs webpage.
