Wenz-Gross, Melodie; Siperstein, Gary N.
Exceptional Children, v65 n1 p91-100 Fall 1998
This study compared the stress, social support, and adjustment of 40 middle school students with learning disabilities or mild mental retardation and 396 general education students without learning problems. The students with learning problems experienced more stress, less peer support, greater adult support, and poorer adjustment, than those without learning problems. Adjustment was related to students' stress in middle school. (Author/DB)
