Summary Having a member of the family with a diagnosis presents unique challenges and experiences. Such is the case in families where there are children with developmental delays (DDs). This is a factor that influences the interactions within the family and can shape the unique dynamic between the children with the DD and his typical siblings (children without any developmental delay). It has been proposed that having a sibling with a DD can influence the behavioral and psychological adjustment of the typical sibling. This study aims at providing a better understanding of the elements that mediate the behavioral and psychological adjustment of the typical siblings in relation to having a sibling with a DD. This study hypothesizes that both the behavioral and psychological adjustment are affected by the traditional cultural level within the family. The purpose of this was to evaluate the extent to which levels of traditional cultural values impacted the behavioral and psychological adjustments of the typical siblings. Results indicated that there was no significant difference between those parents who reported high or moderate levels of traditional cultural values in relation to the adjustment of their typical children. Recommendations for mental health practitioners and limitations within this study are also discussed.
