For this excellent second edition, Harris (Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor, Graduate Sch. of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers Univ.) is joined by new coauthor Glasburg (assistant director, Douglass Developmental Disabilities Ctr., Rutgers Univ.). They have made significant changes to all the original chapters-mostly suggested by parents and siblings-and added a new chapter on the needs of adults with autistic siblings. Examined are the perceptions, needs, compromises, and inevitable demands on an autistic child's siblings throughout their lives. The personal narratives of both parents and siblings (of all ages) provide illustrations of the issues facing nonautistic siblings. While a great deal has been written about the relationship between an autistic child and his/her parents, little is available on these important sibling relationships. Geared toward families, this will also be a valuable tool for educators and professionals who work with autistic children or their siblings. Strongly recommended for all public libraries and for academic libraries documenting autism, family relationships, disability studies, and special education.-Corey Seeman, Univ. of Toledo Libs., OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
