  • About the Edition

    For several decades, families of children with autism have been of interest to practitioners and researchers, with a growing body of literature focusing specifically on the psychosocial functioning of the healthy siblings in the family. Although there have been mixed findings across existing research studies examining the impact children with autism have on siblings, a number of studies have reported that siblings of children with autism experience greater psychosocial adjustment difficulties, thereby suggesting they are a group at risk for maladjustment. The current study examined the variability in siblings" psychosocial adjustment and prosocial behaviour with factors found to be important in the general population and developmental disability field. Furthermore, factors believed to be more specific to having a brother or sister with autism were explored to help determine those siblings at greater risk for psychosocial adjustment difficulties, in addition to those siblings demonstrating more prosocial behaviours. Participants included 72 siblings of children with autism between ages 7 to 14 years, as well as their parent and classroom teacher. Preliminary analyses confirmed variability in the functioning of siblings of children with autism, although the majority of siblings in the present study appeared to be well-adjusted. A minority of siblings were demonstrating substantial internalizing and/or externalizing behaviour problems, and low levels of prosocial behaviour. An analysis of variables predicting siblings" externalizing behaviour problems revealed different factors emerged as salient for parent versus teacher reports. While siblings were reported by parents to display fewer externalizing behaviour problems in the presence of lower levels of parental distress and higher levels of academic achievement, only siblings" global self-worth emerged as a significant predictor for teacher reports. For autism-specific variables, siblings" perception of the frequency of autistic and related behaviours was an important predictor for both parent and teacher reports of siblings" externalizing behaviour problems. None of the sibling or parent variables examined in the current study predicted parent or teacher reports of siblings" internalizing behaviour problems or prosocial behaviour. These findings are discussed with respect to their clinical implications, and directions for future research are presented.

    Frequently, siblings of children with autism have a unique insight into the family situation. As a parent, it’s important to listen to what siblings are trying to communicate. Set the stage early for open and honest communication so that your children feel comfortable asking . The autism discussion should be an on-going one and not a one-time big discussion.
