The study focuses the stability of friendships of students with special educational needs in regular schools, compared to regular students. The sample consisted of 114 students (M age = 14,4); 22 students (19.3%) were identified by the school as SEN students. The results show that on average, SEN students had fewer stable friendships than their peers. Further, a significantly lower proportion of SEN students were members of stable groups compared to regular students. Friendship stability was positively predicted by gender (boys more stable than girls) and perceived friend support. Friendship stability was negatively predicted by special needs (special needs predicted lower friend stability) and peer acceptance.
