Urv, Tiina K.; Zigman, Warren B.; Silverman, Wayne
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v108 n5 p327-39 Sep 2003
Changes in patterns of maladaptive behavior related to age-associated adaptive declines were investigated in 529 adults with mental retardation (ages 30 to 84), 202 with Down syndrome. Certain maladaptive behaviors were related to the onset of adaptive declines, (e.g., lack of boundaries). Findings suggest similarities in the course of age-associated dementia of adults with and without mental retardation. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
