Musical aptitude and adaptive behavior of people with mental retardation

Author(s): Monroe, M. J.

Journal/Book: Am J Ment Retard. 1990; 95: 220-7.

Abstract: Musical aptitude was assessed in 16 adults nominated as having special musical interests and/or skills and 16 matched comparison adults. Information pertaining to strengths and weaknesses in adjustment was also obtained. Musical target subjects scored higher on the test of musical aptitude, particularly if they played a musical instrument. Evidence for difficulties in adjustment associated with musical skill or interest was mixed, although, in general, the results suggested no pervasive maladjustment among those with exceptional skill combined with mental retardation.
