When a child with a developmental disability is born, the change in the family’s way of life may result in a change in its objectives, resulting from the change in priorities and the tendency to give priority to the disabled child’s needs (Patterson, 1982). Accordingly, the parents and the siblings may be harmed by exposure to excessive demands, unequal distribution of functions, burnout, daily fatigue and lack of time for shared leisure activities (Risdal & Singer, 2004).
