MacTurk, Robert H.; And Others
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education Quarterly, v4 n4 p93-109 Win 1985
Social mastery motivation in 11 Down syndrome (DS) and nondelayed infants was observed during social tasks that encouraged socially motivated behaviors and object-play tasks that did not. During object play, DS infants' object-directed behaviors were not appreciably lower, while social behaviors were. During social tasks, no significant difference was found. (Author/CL)
