Conceptualization of Age and Aging by Adolescents, Adult and Elderly People with Mental Retardation.
Lifshitz, Hefziba
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v35 n4 p374-83 Dec 2000
This study used the Child Concept of Age test with 47 individuals with mental retardation, divided into four age groups. Only subjects in the oldest age group (over 60) had an appropriate concept of age. Results suggest that age-related concepts are difficult for this population and conceptualization of old age is influenced by stereotypes. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/DB)
