Abstract
  • The purpose of this study was to compare the levels of protective peer relationships experienced by 3rd to 5th grade students, with and without disabilities. The participants completed a self-report measure of protective peer relationships and school records were reviewed for gender and disability status. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted to evaluate the relation between disability status and levels of protective peer relationships. To compare gender differences and disability status in relation to levels of protective peer relationships, a two-way ANOVA was conducted. Findings did not support a significant relation between disability status and levels of protective peer relationships. There was a significant main effect for gender, as well as a significant interaction between gender and disability status. Results suggest that girls with disabilities are more likely to experience protective peer relationships than boys with disabilities. Implications of these findings are discussed.
