Stoneman, Zolinda; And Others
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v93 n2 p174-83 Sep 1988
The study examined household and child care responsibilities, peer contacts, and out-of-home activities of older same-sex siblings of mentally retarded children compared to matched children without handicapped siblings. Findings indicated that older sisters tended to assume multiple caretaking responsibilities with decreased opportunities for peer contacts and out-of-home activities. (Author/DB)
