Dumaret, A. C.; Duyme, M.; Tomkiewicz, S.
Early Child Development and Care, v145 p1-15 Jun 1998
Examined major discriminating factors for cognitive development in high-IQ and low-IQ children in child care who had been adopted after age four. Found that birth rank, maternal mental retardation, pregnancy/delivery complications, severe prematurity or low birthweight, and number of hospitalizations differentiated the two groups. Over time, IQs increased in the high-IQ group and remained stable in the low-IQ group. (Author/KB)
