Abstract

Interest in the impact and influence of having a brother or sister with a disability has increased over the past 40 years as evidenced by the recent larger number of publications on siblings of persons with disabilities. However, as an area of research, qualitative and quantitative inquiry into siblings and sibling relationships is in its infancy. In this chapter, we review some of the major issues that have been raised in the literature on siblings, addressing theoretical approaches, research designs, measures, and statistical methods used in sibling research. Finally, we examine the many frontiers into which sibling research can and should expand.
