Observations of the Role Relations and Behavior between Older Children with Mental Retardation and Their Younger Siblings.
Brody, Gene H.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v95 n5 p527-36 Mar 1991
Children with mental retardation (n=32) and their younger nonretarded siblings were observed interacting in the home setting. Interactions were characterized by accentuated role asymmetries that favored the younger sibling. Competence of the mentally retarded child reliably predicted sibling role asymmetries. Gender differences in roles and behavior were minimal. (Author/DB)
