In late August we posted here about a very important research study from the highly regarded Down Syndrome Research Group at the University of Arizona. Now Dan Wetmore, at the equally highly regarded Stanford University School of Medicine has provided a very useful review of the Arizona study, via his blog, Innovations in Neurodevelopmental Disorders:
Article review: "Development and validation of the Arizona Cognitive Test Battery for Down syndrome" by Edgin and colleagues
The review looks at why the new test battery is needed, what it assesses, gives some examples of the tests, and discusses future developments and what they will mean to our knowledge about people with Down syndrome
Innovations in Neurodevelopmental Disorders has been added to our 'blogroll' recommendations for regular reading (scroll down the right hand column of this page), as Dan Wetmore plans to blog weekly during 2011 about research relevant to those of us with an interest in Down syndrome and other neurodevelopmental disorders. If you visit the blog's home page you will see where his personal connection to people with Down syndrome began.
