Burt, Diana Byrd; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n5 p502-11 Mar 1992
Comparison of 61 adults with Down's syndrome and 43 adults with mental retardation resulting from other causes found that 8 Down's syndrome adults had both depression and declines in functioning, whereas no adults in the other group showed functional declines. Greater severity of depression was related to poor functioning in adults with Down's syndrome only. (DB)
