Siperstein, Gary N.; Bak, John J.
Mental Retardation, v27 n1 p5-10 Feb 1989
A study of the social relationships of 64 adolescents with moderate mental retardation in a special day school found class social environments similar to those in regular education classes. Students were selective in friendships, showed reciprocity, and chose opposite-sex students, peers from other classes, and adults as friends. Classes also had popular and rejected members.
