Abstract
This study focused on the nature of friendship in each of two dyadic relationships between a young adult with a developmental disability and a nondisabled peer. Students with developmental disabilities who are included in university and college classes will meet nondisabled peers as inclusive education becomes more prevalent at the postsecondary level. The basic interpretive interviews captured on video helped to explore the nature of their friendships. Included were third-party informants, a parent and a professor, who illuminated the important themes that emerged during the research.
