Maurer, Helen; Newbrough, J. R.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v91 n5 p511-15 Mar 1987
Adults inexperienced with mental retardation, parents of retarded children, and teachers of the retarded children viewed slides of retarded and nonretarded children whose facial expressions depicted happiness, anger, sadness, and/or neutrality. Inexperienced adults identified fewer expressions of retarded children than did parents who, in turn, identified fewer expressions than did teachers. (Author/JW)
