Sex differences in prevalence of mental retardation?

    The Early Prediction of Adolescent Depression study (EPAD) is a prospective longitudinal study of offspring of parents with recurrent depression. Parents with recurrent major depressive disorder, co-parents, and offspring (aged 9–17 years at baseline) were assessed three times over 4 years in a community by: Goldfarb's work with small samples from a single New York City orphanage are widely cited by orphanage critics. One study () included IQ test results with tests for speech, educational achievement, and personality. He compared fifteen year old orphans, later moved into foster care, with fifteen foster care-only youth.

    However, many individuals do not understand that different levels of mental retardation exist based on IQ scores. Although mild retardation is the most common level of retardation, accounting for % of all diagnoses of mental retardation, most of the population lump all forms of mental retardation together. Reading impairment is more common in males, but the magnitude and origin of this gender difference are debated. In a large-scale study of reading impairment among , beginning second-graders, gender differences increased with greater severity of reading impairment, peaking at a ratio of for a broad measure of fluency and a ratio of for a narrow measure of by:

This study investigated the self-image and psychological well-being in 67 children and adolescents age 10–16 years with severe reading difficulties and/or dyslexia. The purpose of this study was to determine the relative predictive accuracy of a number of measures employed in a 4-year longitudinal study of the neuropsychological abilities of normal and retarded readers.

The results indicated that there were some very accurate predictive measures of reading and spelling achievement levels over the 4-year age span studied, and that the relative accuracy of these measures differed markedly for normal and retarded by:   The purpose of this study was to examine the development of reading prosody and its impact on later reading skills.
