Hupp, Susan C.; Abbeduto, Leonard
Journal of Early Intervention, v15 n3 p219-25 Sum 1991
This study examined behaviors reflecting mastery motivation in 17 young (ages 2 and 3) children with moderate and severe cognitive delays. Results supported the application of the mastery motivation model to this group of children who used mastery behaviors significantly more often than lower level exploratory behaviors. Use of mastery behaviors was related to the occurrence of success. (Author/DB)
