Marcell, Michael M.; Cohen, Stuart
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v13 n6 p533-51 Nov-Dec 1992
The hearing ability and related cognitive ability of 26 adolescents and young adults with Down's Syndrome (DS) and 26 matched subjects with trainable mental retardation (MR) were compared. Results revealed greater hearing losses in DS than in other MR individuals, especially in the high-frequency range. DS subjects with poorer hearing needed more time to identify spoken words. (DB)
