Abstract

This overview of research on relations between siblings with and without disabilities addresses four aspects: (1) the role relationships between siblings, (2) the amount of contact between siblings, (3) qualitative aspects of this contact, and (4) type of play behavior. Research shows that a characteristic feature of the relationship between siblings with and without disabilities is a greater role asymmetry compared with pairs of nondisabled siblings: Regardless of birth order, the nondisabled sibling adopts a dominantposition. Contact between siblings is generally not restricted, and sibling relations are generally rated positively by both nondisabled siblings andparents. Play behavior reveals that nondisabled siblings try to compensatethe differences in play level and thus establish the necessary preconditions for playing together. Research has singled out three factors that could impact on relations between siblings with and without disability: (1) differential attention paid to siblings by parents, (2) the transfer of childcare responsibilities to the nondisabled sibling, and (3) the type of disability. The state of research on the impact these three factors exert on sibling relations is reported. Finally, conclusions are drawn for providing psychosocial support to families with disabled children.
