Age, Adaptive Behavior, and Alzheimer Disease in Down Syndrome: Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Analyses.
Rasmussen, Dianne E.; Sobsey, Dick
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n2 p151-65 Sep 1994
Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses compared age-related changes in adaptive functioning in institutionalized adults with and without Down's syndrome. Cross-sectional analysis showed significant differences related to level of functioning but not to age or etiology. Longitudinal analysis showed a decline in self-help and communication skills in several Down's syndrome individuals older than 40. (Author/DB)
