Siperstein, Gary N.; Leffert, James S.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v101 n4 p339-51 Jan 1997
Comparison of 20 socially accepted and 20 socially rejected intermediate grade students with mental retardation in regular class settings found accepted children displayed a higher level of social behavior and a lower level of sensitive-isolated behavior. Accepted children chose friendly-submissive (rather than friendly-assertive) goals and a low rate of positive outgoing strategies. (DB)
