Green, Frederick P.; And Others
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v30 n2 p91-108 Jun 1995
This study found that, in the early stages of joint participation in community recreation activities, 19 nondisabled adults expressed cautious yet optimistic attitudes toward developing "friendships" with people with mental retardation. Such friendships are often perceived to be based partly on obligation and/or altruism. (DB)
