  • Expressive as opposed to telegraphic in Down syndrome
  • Telegraphic as opposed to expressive in Down syndrome

3. Typically developing children (at 4-5 years) are worse at?

4. Which cognitive phenotypes are represented in the DD between WS and SLI?

  • Language
  • Problem solving
  • Social cognition

5. What is the main premise of the dorsal stream deficit hypothesis?

  • Structural abnormalities in dorsal stream of WS interact with intact ventral to contribute to visual-spatial deficits
  • Structural abnormalities in dorsal stream of WS contribute to visual-spatial deficits
  • Structural abnormalities in ventral stream of WS contribute to visual-spatial deficits
  • Structural abnormalities in ventral and dorsal stream of WS contribute to visual-spatial deficits
