This study examined emotional intelligence and emotionality among adolescent siblings. Data were collected via a national, online survey, yielding responses from 97 parent-sibling pairs. Results showed that siblings of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) reported higher levels of anxiety toward the target child than did siblings of typically-developing individuals. Sibling feelings toward the target child were related to both parental and target child factors, but only among families of individuals with IDD.
