Coherence of Personal Narratives Across the Lifespan: A Multidimensional Model and Coding Method
A multidimensional method of coding narrative coherence (the Narrative Coherence Coding Scheme) was derived from the model and is described here, demonstrating the utility of this approach and its potential to guide future research on the developmental foundations of narratives coherence.
ADHD symptoms in children with FXS
Parent‐ and teacher‐report of attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms were examined using problem behavior and DSM‐IV symptom inventory questionnaires for 63 children with full
The Abilities of Children With Mental Retardation to Remember Personal Experiences: Implications for Testimony
The abilities of children with mental retardation to remember the details of a personally experienced event were investigated and they accurately recalled the health check features, provided detail, and resisted misleading questions about features that did not occur.
Reminiscing in the early years: Patterns of maternal elaborativeness and children's remembering
This study focused on individual differences in maternal style and children's developing recall abilities in early memory conversations. Within a longitudinal design, a sample of 56 mother—child
Children's memory for a salient medical procedure: implications for testimony.
The findings suggest that, under some conditions, young children can provide accurate and detailed reports of personally experienced distressful events.
Young children's long-term retention of a pediatric examination.
Although clear age effects were observed in recall, the delay interval did not strongly affect performance over the 6-week period, and with increasing age, a greater percentage of the features was spontaneously recalled.
Boosting Children's Memory by Training Mothers in the Use of an Elaborative Conversational Style as an Event Unfolds
An experimental methodology was adapted to examine children's language skills and mothers' conversational styles during a specified event as they are linked to the children's event memory.
Executive functions in young males with fragile X syndrome in comparison to mental age-matched controls: baseline findings from a longitudinal study.
Findings suggest that deficits in EF in boys with fragile X syndrome are not solely attributable to developmental delays but, rather, present as a true array of neurocognitive deficits.
Does the use of dolls facilitate children's memory of visits to the doctor?
Age differences in children's recall of salient experiences have frequently been documented, but these findings have routinely been based on studies in which verbal interviews have been employed.
Working memory subsystems and task complexity in young boys with Fragile X syndrome.
Findings implicate a generalised deficit in working memory in young boys with FXS, with a specific disproportionate impairment in the phonological loop, which may provide an adequate estimate of working memory until greater involvement of the central executive is achieved.
