Edward Ziegler
[A] wonderful resource and one that families with disabled children have needed for a long time.

Silverstein, a physician, leads off with a first-person account of his experiences as the older brother of an autistic sibling. Siegel, a developmental psychologist, presents discussion of family approaches to handicaps based on clinical interviews with some 1,000 families of various ethnic, social, and educational backgrounds. Following is a review of research on family factors and adjustments of the nonimpaired siblings, along with an analysis of family coping and defenses patterned on the Adult Children of Alcoholics model.
