Children's Responses to Retarded Peers as a Function of Social Behaviors, Labeling, and Age.
Van Bourgondien, Mary E.
Exceptional Children, v53 n5 p432-39 Feb 1987
Forty-eight girls aged 8-9 and 48 girls ages 12-13 viewed videotapes of a same-age, same-grade peer exhibiting either socially appropriate or inappropriate behaviors. Half the subjects were told the child was in a special class for the retarded. Negative social behaviors affected peer attitudes, while the label did not. (Author/JW)
