Children's Intellectual and Emotional-Behavioral Adjustment at 4 Years as a Function of Cocaine Exposure, Maternal Characteristics, and Environmental Risk.
Bennett, David S.; Bendersky, Margaret; Lewis, Michael
Developmental Psychology, v38 n5 p648-58 Sep 2002
Examined 4-year-olds for effects on IQ of prenatal cocaine exposure, exposure to other substances, risk factors, and neonatal medical problems. Found that maternal verbal IQ and low environmental risk predicted child IQ. Cocaine exposure negatively predicted children's overall IQ and verbal reasoning scores for boys only. Maternal harsh discipline, maternal depressive symptoms, and increased environmental risk predicted externalizing problems. Only maternal depressive symptoms predicted internalizing problems.
