Abstract

Investigates whether short breaks and respite services for families with a disabled child in England make a difference to siblings. Provides a qualitative analysis of sibling and parent responses. Previous research identifies positive and negative effects of being a sibling in a family which includes a disabled child. Short break services (also known as respite) provide families with a break from caring and offer disabled children the chance to participate in various activities. This paper investigates the effects that these short breaks have on siblings.
