This study has produced the following results. All the children with RAP show an excessive excitability and timidness, a strong insecurity and apprehension towards the society. The majority of the children show a strong dependence upon their relatives, they are not able to place themselves, as active subjects, in the present trality and to make plans for their future life (absence of interests and/or programmes about their autorealization). These children have a psychological maturity not corresponding to the physical one, even if there is no real strongly marked mental insufficiency. About 50% of the subjects have difficult relations with their siblings, friends and teachers, unlike the group examined (infact these difficulties are not seen).
