Abstract This paper examines the effects of a handicapped child on normal siblings. The complexities of family networks are explored in terms of Farber's (1975) model of arrest of the family cycle. Major sibling studies undertaken since the early sixties are reviewed, and methodological shortcomings discussed in relation to future research needs. The possibility of identifying both siblings “at risk” and characteristics of adequately coping families is canvassed. Currently available research findings are interpreted in terms of their implications for professionals working with handicapped children and their families.
