Spence, Melanie J.; Capt, D. Betty
Infant-Toddler Intervention: The Transdisciplinary Journal, v4 n2 p75-85 Jun 1994
This study examined the effect of a salient multimodal reinforcer on object search performance of 9 children with Down's syndrome (24-56 months old). Attentional deficits of children with mental retardation or at risk for delay influenced their performance. Contingency learning of children with Down's syndrome may be affected by the attentional demands of a task. (Author/JDD)
