The results of this meta-analysis therefore suggest once again that children with disabilities are not as well regarded by their peers as children without disabilities. Furthermore, the differences in effect size found when these children were compared to average/ high-achieving students and low-achieving students may suggest that peers view children with ASD and low-achieving students as more similar with respect to being socially competent.
These findings are interesting because they suggest that there may be a common feature among these children that is associated with their lower social status. Any number of things could explain such a difference. For example, similar social status ratings among children with disabilities and low-achieving children could suggest that either a common cognitive feature among these children contributes to both their academic and peer difficulties, or that stigmatization due to the academic difficulties of both children may lead to negative peer views.
