Swaim, Karen F.; Morgan, Sam B.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v31 n2 p195-05 Apr 2001
A study examined 233 children's ratings of attitudes and behavioral interventions toward a peer with or without autism. Both third- and sixth-grade children showed less positive attitudes toward children with autism. Children showed no differences on behavioral intentions. Information about autism did not affect ratings. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
