Relations between Mothers' Expectations and the Performance of Their Infants Who Have Developmental Handicaps.
Diamond, Karen E.; LeFurgy, William G.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v97 n1 p11-20 Jul 1992
Mothers of 23 infants with disabilities predicted their child's performance on developmental measures with accuracy levels comparable to those of parents of preschool children without disabilities. Mothers were more accurate in predicting motor performance than cognitive performance. There was a negative relationship between initial maternal accuracy and degree of developmental change over time. (Author/JDD)
