Carran, Deborah T.; And Others
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v9 n1 p14-31 Spr 1989
Children (N=567) in two cohorts were stratified by birthweight into groups of very low birthweight, low birthweight, and normal birthweight. Children were then tracked into the school system to determine educational achievement as an outcome measure. The distribution of handicaps is analyzed, and estimated relative risk ratios are presented. (Author/JDD)
