Sexton, David; And Others
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v10 n3 p80-95 Fall 1990
The study compared maternal judgments about the development of their young disabled children with independently obtained developmental testing data for 53 children. Results indicated (1) maternal and professional estimates were highly correlated; (2) mothers systematically provided higher estimates across developmental domains; and (3) child IQ was the best predictor of agreement in developmental estimates.
