Heiman, Tali; Margalit, Malka
Journal of Special Education, v32 n3 p154-63 Fall 1998
This study assessed 575 students with mild mental retardation in three educational settings. Their loneliness, depression, and social skills were assessed through student self-reports and peer perception of social status. Among findings were that preadolescent students in self-contained classes in regular schools exhibited more loneliness and depression than similar students in special-education schools. (DB)
