Growing Up With a Handicapped Sibling.
Glimps, Blanche E.
PTA Today, v10 n6 p22-23 Apr 1985
Growing up in a family with a handicapped child offers non-handicapped siblings unusual opportunies for growth. Having handicapped children in the family can make siblings strong, self-sufficient, helpful, and understanding, or weak, emotional, and dependent. Research on this topic is reviewed, and ways in which parents, schools, and parent-teacher associations can help are suggested. (CB)
