Bauminger, Nirit; Shulman, Cory
Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, v7 n1 p81-97 Mar 2003
A study involving 14 mothers with high-functioning children (ages 8-17) with autism and 14 with typical children found both groups tended to have same-gender and same-age friendships. However, friendships of children with autism differ compared with typical children's on number of friends, friendship duration, frequency of meetings, and activities. (Contains references.)
