- Siblings of young children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often develop
characteristics of ASD themselves. Interaction patterns within the family may play an important role in the increased vulnerability of these siblings. The current study aims to broaden our understanding of interactions between both parents and high-risk siblings as between high-risk siblings and their brother or sister with ASD.
