Patterns of Decision-Making Behaviour by People with Intellectual Disability: An Exploratory Study.
Jenkinson, Jo; Nelms, Robyn
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v19 n2 p99-109 1994
Ten vignettes depicting either major or minor hypothetical problem situations were presented to 25 young adults with intellectual disability and 14 university students. Participants with intellectual disability tended to make fewer vigilant responses and more defensive avoidance or hypervigilant responses, compared to the university students. Response category was related to the type and nature of the decision required. (Author/DB)
