Perceptions of Siblings with Autism and Relationships with Them: European American and Asian American Siblings Draw and Tell
Sage, Kara D.; Jegatheesan, Brinda
Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, v35 n2 p92-103 Jun 2010
Background: This study examined typically developing children's perceptions of their siblings with autism and their relationships with them in a European American and an Asian American family. Method: Data were drawn from interviews with the siblings using the "draw-and-tell" technique and participant observation in the homes of the 2 families. Results and Conclusions: Results indicate that the 2 typically developing children differed in their perceptions of their siblings with autism and their relationship with them. Results also suggest that parent involvement in providing their children with adequate knowledge about autism and its effects on their siblings with autism plays an important role in children developing a nurturing relationship with their siblings with autism. (Contains 5 figures and 2 tables.)
