Examined links between the match between adolescents' developmental stage and the family and community environment and their psychosocial outcomes, implications for later outcomes, and impact of adolescent diabetic status. Found that even after controlling for psychosocial factors during adolescence, the benefits of developmental match were observed during young adulthood. Preadolescents with diabetes perceived their community as more supportive than other groups. (Author/KB)
