Cognitive Antecedents of Imitativeness and Persistence in Children with Mental Retardation.
Kreitler, Shulamith; Kreitler, Hans
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v95 n3 p342-55 Nov 1990
Two studies with children (n=123) with mild mental retardation were designed to test whether specific clusters of beliefs would predict imitation and persistence behaviors in this population. The studies found that belief scores were significantly related to such behaviors. Implications concerning motivation, the developmental-difference controversy, and individual differences are discussed. (Author/DB)
