Sibling Relationships When a Child Has Autism: Marital Stress and Support Coping.
Rivers, Jessica Wood; Stoneman, Zolinda
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v33 n4 p383-94 Aug 2003
Family systems theory was employed to study sibling relationships in 50 families with a child (ages 4-12) with autism. Typically developing siblings expressed satisfaction with their sibling relationships. Parents were somewhat less positive about the sibling relationships. Stress in the marital relationship was associated with compromised sibling relationships. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
