Clegg, J. A.; Standen, P. J.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v95 n6 p663-71 May 1991
Developmentally disabled adults (n=36) attending day centers were interviewed regarding peer-group friendships. Results found those without peer-group friends to be similar to lonely people without disabilities on two of the three factors explored. Those with friends were found more likely to describe themselves positively on all dimensions. (Author/PB)
