Henry, Lucy A.; Gudjonsson, Gisli H.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n6 p491-508 Nov 1999
A study compared how well 31 children (ages 11-12) with mental retardation, 19 age-matched (CA) children, and 21 mental-age (MA) matched children were able to recall a staged event one day later. Children with mental retardation were more suggestible in response to closed misleading questions than were CA children. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
