Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


There is a long history of research which explores sibling relationships in families which include a child or adult with developmental disabilities/autistic adult. Recent years have been a particularly exciting time in this field, with the development of new theoretical frameworks and wide-ranging methods: analysis of large datasets; longitudinal exploration of how siblings influence each other over time; and qualitative approaches which have included the voices and perspectives of the individuals with developmental disabilities within the sibling relationship. There have also been positive moves to include more diverse groups of participants than has often been the case in the past. In this special issue we hope to include the best of such current developments.
