Development of Adaptive Behavior in Preschoolers with Autism or Down Syndrome.
Loveland, Katherine A.; Kelley, Michelle L.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n1 p13-20 Jul 1991
This study found that 16 preschoolers with Down's syndrome attained higher age equivalents and standard scores in "socialization" than did 16 preschoolers with autism. Adaptive age equivalent was positively related to chronological age for children with Down's syndrome in all domains, but only in "communication" for children with autism. (Author/JDD)
