Down Syndrome Temperament: The Stereotype at Middle Childhood and Adolescence.
Gunn, Pat; Cuskelly, Monica
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v38 n1 p59-70 1991
Behavioral ratings by mothers and teachers of 94 children with Down's Syndrome (between 8 and 14 years of age) indicated general support for the amiable personality stereotype, but ratings of low persistence were associated with maternal impressions of difficulty. There was little agreement between mothers and teachers regarding individual child ratings. (Author/DB)
