We compared the play of 19 children with ASD to 19 typically developing (TD) children matched on language and cognitive skills. All children were verbal. Results revealed no differences in indiscriminate actions,…

Facon, Bruno; Magis, David – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Uncertainty persists regarding the post-childhood trajectory of syntactic acquisition of persons with Down syndrome (DS). In some studies, asymptote is reached in the early teens, whereas others find syntax continuing to develop at least into early adulthood. This study addressed the issue using a cross-sectional approach. Receptive syntax and…

Little is known about health limitations and service utilization among the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) children with developmental disabilities (DDs) due to limited data. Our study examined the prevalence of DDs, health limitations, services used, and the unmet needs of NHPI children aged 3 to 17 years using cross-sectional data…

Joyce, Anna; Hill, Catherine M.; Karmiloff-Smith, Annette; Dimitriou, Dagmara – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Sleep plays a key role in the consolidation of newly acquired information and skills into long term memory. Children with Down syndrome (DS) and Williams syndrome (WS) frequently experience sleep problems, abnormal sleep architecture, and difficulties with learning; thus, we predicted that children from these clinical populations would demonstrate…

Speech disorders occur commonly in individuals with Down syndrome (DS), although data regarding the auditory-perceptual speech features are limited. This descriptive study assessed 47 perceptual speech features during connected speech samples in 26 children with DS. The most severely affected speech features were: naturalness, imprecise…

Dieleman, Lisa M.; De Pauw, Sarah S. W.; Soenens, Bart; Van Hove, Geert; Prinzie, Peter – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
This study aimed to describe problem behaviors and psychosocial strengths, examine the problem-strength interrelations, and evaluate profiles of problems and strengths in youth with Down syndrome (DS). The community-based sample consisted of 67 parents of children with DS aged between 4 and 19 years. Parents reported about the developmental age…

Adams, Dawn; Clarke, Samantha; Griffith, Gemma; Howlin, Pat; Moss, Jo; Petty, Jane; Tunnicliffe, Penny; Oliver, Chris – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
It is well documented that mothers of children with challenging behavior (CB) experience elevated levels of stress and that this persists over time, but less is known about the experience of mothers of children with rare genetic syndromes. This article describes 2 studies, 1 cross-sectional and 1 longitudinal, comparing well-being in mothers of…

Chelsea; Frank-Crawford, Michelle A.; Moore Channell, Marie; Pierpont, Elizabeth I.; Feingold, Eleanor; Maslen, Cheryl L.; Reeves, Roger H.; Sherman, Stephanie L. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
The cause of the high degree of variability in cognition and behavior among individuals with Down syndrome (DS) is unknown. We hypothesized that birth defects requiring surgery in the first years of life (congenital heart defects and gastrointestinal defects) might affect an individual's level of function. We used data from the first 234…

Hodnett, Jennifer; Scheithauer, Mindy; Call, Nathan A.; Mevers, Joanne Lomas; Miller, Sarah J. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS) is a genetic disorder, commonly caused by a 17p11.2 deletion, affecting the Retinoic Acid Induced 1 gene. It affects approximately 1 in 25,000 individuals, with over 90% engaging in challenging behaviors. Function-based treatments, using the principles of applied behavior analysis, have consistently been shown to…

Zyga, Olena; Russ, Sandra W.; Dimitropoulos, Anastasia – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Research has shown that children with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) have social-cognitive challenges and decreased quality parent-child interactions. However, given the low prevalence rate, developing interventions for children with PWS is faced with the significant challenge of enrolling enough participants for local studies. To better understand…

Children exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) can experience negative social, emotional, behavioral, and academic outcomes. A growing body of research has examined the relationship between intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and IPV exposure. We systematically reviewed the literature for research exploring this relationship and…

Biggs, Elizabeth E.; Carter, Erik W.; Gilson, Carly B. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Building the communicative competence of individuals who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) requires intervention and support. This systematic review examined experimental studies involving aided AAC modeling to promote the expressive communication of children and youth (i.e., birth to age 21) with complex communication needs. A…
