Tests to Assess Down Syndrome Created
[Source: University of Arizona]
Neuroscientists in the Down Syndrome Research Group at the University of Arizona have created a battery of tests that quickly aid in the assessment of the cognitive abilities of persons with Down syndrome. The UA collaborated on the development of the tests with colleagues at Johns Hopkins University and Emory University.
The tests — a series of computer exercises that are not language dependent — offer clinicians and other researchers a new tool that can help determine both the developmental trajectory of those with Down syndrome and aid in devising drug and behavioral interventions.
The study is published in the Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
