Wishart, Jennifer G.; Pitcairn, T. K.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v105 n6 p466-79 Nov 2000
The ability of 16 children (ages 8-14) with Down syndrome, 16 age-matched children with nonspecific developmental delay, and 23 younger controls to recognize facial identity and expression was examined. Children with Down syndrome were equally proficient at recognizing unfamiliar faces when expression was varied but significantly poorer at recognizing expression overall. (Contains references.)
