Journal of Special Education, v33 n1 p50-61 Spr 1999
This study examined the effects of severity of disability, and classroom composition (heterogeneous or nonheterogeneous) on peer acceptance of students with disabilities. Predicted severity of disability-by-classroom composition interaction effects on peer acceptance were indicated by multivariate analysis of variance, and analysis of variance after controlling for effects of grade level.
