Challenging behaviors, such as aggression or noncompliance, occur in almost all children with Down syndrome and negatively impact quality of life for the individual and family. The proposed study will be the first to comprehensively investigate cognitive and neuropsychological factors that impact the development of challenging behaviors in children with Down syndrome. Findings from this research will inform future interventions targeting challenging behaviors in this population.
