Effects of Maternal Mental Retardation and Poverty on Intellectual, Academic, and Behavioral Status of School-Age Children.
Feldman, Maurice A.; Walton-Allen, Nicole
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v101 n4 p352-64 Jan 1997
Comparison of 27 school-aged impoverished children of mothers with mild mental retardation and 25 children of mothers without mental retardation found the children whose mothers had mental retardation had lower IQs, lower academic achievement, and more behavior problems. Boys were affected more severely than girls. Not one child with a mother who had mental retardation was problem-free. (Author/DB)
