American Journal on Mental Retardation, v105 n6 p486-508 Nov 2000
Differences and similarities between 245 brothers and sisters of adults with mental retardation in the sibling relationship were examined. Sisters scored higher in the caregiving, companionship, and positive affect aspects of the sibling relationship. Sibling involvement increased over time, but was dependent upon changes in maternal health. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
