Diamond, Karen E.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v13 n1 p68-81 Spr 1993
This study of 86 children (ages 30-67 months) attending a community screening clinic found that 2 factors--parents' concerns about speech, language, or cognitive skills, and parents' ratings of the child's activity on a temperament scale--accounted for 27% of the variance in the likelihood of referral to early intervention services.
