Young, Edna Carter; Kramer, Bonnie M.
Mental Retardation, v29 n2 p75-79 Apr 1991
Age-related differences in language and other neuropsychological variables in 60 noninstitutionalized adults with Down syndrome were examined. Results indicated that there were significant relations between advanced age and the ability to comprehend spoken language and between advanced age and independence in activities of daily living skills. Verbal skills were not significantly related to aging. (Author/JDD)
