Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v64 n1 p1-114 1999
Assessed continuity and change in diagnosis, intelligence, and language skills in children with autism, Down Syndrome, and other developmental delays, identifying precursors of gains in language skills and peer engagement in mid-school years. Found that early nonverbal communication and play skills predicted initiations of peer play for Down syndrome children and extent of peer engagement of autistic children. (JPB)
