Role Relations between Children Who Are Mentally Retarded and Their Older Siblings: Observations in Three In-Home Contexts.
Stoneman, Zolinda; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v10 n1 p61-76 1989
This study of 16 pairs of older nonhandicapped siblings and same-sex younger mentally retarded siblings found that the amount of sibling interaction was related to the contexts of toy play, snacking, or television-viewing. Compared to nonhandicapped sibling pairs, older siblings of mentally retarded children more frequently assumed teacher, manager, and helper roles. (Author/JDD)
