Johnson, Cynthia R.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v16 n3 p221-31 May-Jun 1995
Fifty children and adolescents with affective disorders and mental retardation admitted to a psychiatric inpatient unit were compared with 50 inpatients without depression. Behavioral symptoms occurred significantly more often in the affective group than in the comparison group. The behavioral presentation of affective symptoms in children and adolescents with mental retardation was similar to those without cognitive impairment. (Author/DB)
