New IQ Test for Mentally Handicapped

Dr. David Hessel and his colleagues at the University of California, Davis, have devised an intelligence test for children with fragile X syndrome or genetically based developmental disabilities.

Before Dr. Hessel's work, most children with low-functioning intelligence would score zero on IQ tests. There were no accurate ways to indicate any nuances in ability.

This study appears in the journal Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
