Peer-mediated interventions are effective for children with ASD. We investigated the difference in play performance of 68 children with ASD playing with a sibling versus a nonsibling peer. Test of Playfulness scores were significantly higher with a nonsibling play partner. Two social items explained much of the difference: "support of playmate" and "response to play cues," indicating these need to be a focus of intervention for sibling dyads.
