Latino siblings of children with developmental disabilities at risk
According to a new study from the Bradley Hasbro Children's Research Center, Latino siblings of children with developmental disabilities may be at risk for negative outcomes themselves. This study was published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and points to an elevated risk of conditions such as separation anxiety and agoraphobia. These siblings were also less likely to express their emotions, internalizing them instead.
