This study examined the validity of the Severe Impairment Battery (SIB) for measuring cognitive decline in clients with Down syndrome with 10 individuals showing behavioral decline on a standard measure and 14 individuals without such decline. On the SIB, the deteriorating group showed a significant decline between baseline and 12 and 24 months later on the orientation factor. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
