Profiles and Development of Adaptive Behavior in Children with Down Syndrome.
Dykens, Elisabeth M.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n5 p580-87 Mar 1993
Examination of the profiles and developmental trajectories of adaptive behavior of 80 children with Down's syndrome indicated a significant weakness in communication skills (especially expressive language), relative to daily living and socialization skills. Children ages 1-6 showed significant age-related gains in adaptive functioning, but older subjects showed no relationship between age and adaptive behavior. (Author/JDD)
