Harland, Penelope; Cuskelly, Monica
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v47 n3 p293-307 Sep 2000

Although mothers were the primary care takers, siblings played an important, secondary role. Siblings expressed guilt about being unable to take a more active role and were aware of future demands.
