Peter Burke, "Brothers and Sisters of Disabled Children"
Jessica Kingsley Publishers | ISBN 1843100436 | 2003 Year | PDF | 0,57 Mb | 160 Pages


Examining the overlooked subject of non-disabled siblings in families where there is a disabled child, Brothers and Sisters of Disabled Children details the experiences of these children and explores what it means to have a disabled brother or sister. Through family interviews and one-on-one meetings, Peter Burke records siblings' views on issues ranging from the everyday social restrictions of their lives and the discrimination they face at school; the difficulties of finding their own identity in 'disabled' families and competition for parental attention; through to their concerns about the future.
