Another look at friendships for children with special needs is: Delicate Threads by Debbie Staub. It tells of 7 different friendships in an inclusive school between children with developmental disabilities and mainstream classmates. It is interesting to look at each of the different friendships to see what makes each work and what makes the friendships that break down do so.
