Early Child Development and Care, v134 p23-42 Jul 1997
Examined the family backgrounds, health and developmental characteristics of 127 children from disadvantaged and deprived environments adopted after age 4. Found that parental psychosocial antecedents, medical and health problems and difficulties in infancy were more prevalent in this group than in the general population. Late age of placement, neglect, and abuse increased emotional and behavioral problems. (JPB)
