|Title:||Experiences of Australian Siblings of an Individual With an Autism Spectrum Disorder||Contributor(s):||Bitsika, Vicki (author); Sharpley, Christopher (author) ; Mailli, Rebecca (author)||Publication Date:||2015||DOI:||10.1080/07317107.2015.1035972||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18268||Abstract:||The experiences of 75 non-Autism Spectrum Disorder (NASD) children and adolescents who had a sibling with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) were investigated. Differences were found according to age and gender for issues such as amount of time spent with their sibling and access to parents. Having a younger sibling with an ASD was associated with a lower level of confidence in being to live their lives as they wished. Female NASD participants commented that their lives were more influenced than male NASD participants. About half of all NASD participants reported inconsistencies in family rule adherences and parental expectation.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Child & Family Behavior Therapy, 37(2), p. 93-104||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||Philadelphia, United States of America||ISSN:||1545-228X
