Carta, Judith J.; And Others
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v14 n2 p184-216 Sum 1994
This article reviews 46 experimental studies on behavioral and developmental outcomes associated with prenatal exposure to illicit drugs. Only half of the 460 individual outcomes significantly indicated adverse effects of prenatal exposure. The greatest number of these outcomes was for infants younger than one month, with relatively few outcomes in older toddler and preschool age groups. (Author/DB)
