Social Behavior and the Social Acceptance and Rejection of Children with Mental Retardation.
Siperstein, Gary N.; And Others
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v31 n4 p271-81 Dec 1996
A study of 43 children with mental retardation working with peers on a cooperative task found that different factors influence peer acceptance and rejection. Acceptance was influenced by overall quantity of a child's interactions and peer perceptions of positive behavior; rejection was influenced by positive behavior of the target child and peer perceptions of negative behavior.
