Genetic and Environmental Origins of Verbal and Performance Components of Cognitive Delay in 2-Year-Olds.
Eley, Thalia C.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v35 n4 p1122-31 Jul 1999
Investigated the etiology of several measures of cognitive delay in over 3,000 pairs of 2-year-old twins, focusing on group-differences heritability for general and specific cognitive delays. Concluded that because the genetic and environmental origins of verbal and performance delays in infancy differ, they are better considered separately rather than combined into a composite measure of general cognitive delay.
