dc.description.abstractInvestigated the difference between people with developmental disabilities who did or did not have peer-group friends. 28 adults with developmental disabilities attending day centers were interviewed. Those with a friend were significantly more likely to describe themselves positively on all dimensions and to describe themselves as nondisabled. Ss without a peer-group friend were similar to lonely people without disabilities on 2 of 3 factors explored. Qualitative analysis of Ss' descriptions of their friendships suggested that most Ss had relatively superficial relationships, since Ss used descriptive constructs that ordinarily apply to strangers.
