American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v86 n4 p361-66 Jan 1982
Fourteen nonretarded second-grade children, 14 educable mentally retarded elementary-aged children, and 14 trainable mentally retarded adolescents, all of preoperational cognitive level on Piagetian tasks, were compared on measures of perceptual perspective-taking, empathy, and helping. In their performance on a simple task, Ss did not vary on any of these measures. (Author)
