Mental Retardation, v38 n1 p42-49 Feb 2000
Task persistence by 31 children (ages 9-13) with and without mental retardation during two challenging motor tasks was investigated. A main effect was found for group affiliation: children without mental retardation attempted more trials over three sessions. Results indicated children with mental retardation were less persistent than typical children. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
