Age-Related Differences in the Organization of Children's Knowledge of Illness.
Hergenrather, Julie R.; Rabinowitz, Mitchell
Developmental Psychology, v27 n6 p952-59 Nov 1991
In a study of 6 to 14 year olds' knowledge of illness, younger children used concepts not related to illness when sorting illness-related stimuli. They also used concepts related to behavior, rather than symptoms, when performing tasks involving recognition of illness and causes of illness. Older children believed that symptoms signaled disease. (BC)
