Direct and Indirect Behavioral Effects of Different Genetic Disorders of Mental Retardation.
Hodapp, Robert M.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v102 n1 p67-79 Jul 1997
Three models of behavioral effects of genetic disorders characterized by mental retardation were compared: (1) no-specific effect model (all genetic disorders have identical behavioral outcomes); (2) totally specific model (each genetic disorder has unique outcomes); and (3) partially specific model (two or more genetic disorders share outcomes not shared by other disorders). Partially specific effects were most commonly found. (Author/DB)
