Guralnick, Michael J.; Groom, Joseph M.
Developmental Psychology, v24 n4 p595-604 Jul 1988
Investigated friendship patterns among four-year-old mildly developmentally delayed and three- and four-year-old nonhandicapped children participating in a series of mainstreamed playgroups. Most children preferred a specific peer, but only a few mildly delayed children and three-year-olds were able to establish reciprocal friendships. (SKC)
