Developmental Trends in Cognitive Skills for Children Diagnosed as Autistic and Schizophrenic.
Waterhouse, Lynn; Fein, Deborah
Child Development, v55 n1 p236-48 Feb 1984
Comparisons of age and test score correlations, comparisons of cross-sequential means, and trends of means for diagnostic subgroups and normal controls suggest developmental delay for all measured skills at all ages for autistic and schizophrenic children. Findings also suggest a trend for steady prepubertal cognitive skill development, followed by a postpubertal decline for both diagnostic groups. (Author/RH)
