Competence and Adjustment of Siblings of Children with Mental Retardation.
Hannah, Mary E.; Midlarsky, Elizabeth
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n1 p22-37 Jan 1999
This study compared the adjustment and competence of 100 children and adolescents, half of whom were siblings of individuals with mental retardation. Although there were no overall differences for internalizing disorders, externalizing disorders, self-esteem, and competence, boys with a mentally retarded sibling had more difficulty in school functioning and girls with a mentally retarded sibling expressed their distress through internalization.
