Porges S. 1998. Regulatory Disorders and Developmental Outcomes: [Final report]. College Park, MD: University of Maryland at College Park, 53 pp.

Annotation: The overall goal of the project was to identify during infancy the measurable precursors of severe behavioral and emotional disorders. The study recruited 80 infants with regulatory disorders and 80 normal peers (matched for socioeconomic status, minority group status, presence or absence of father in home, number of children in family, and parenting stress). The regulatory disordered infants and control infants were assessed at 9 months and followed at 24 and 36 months. A comprehensive battery was administered at each assessment point. Mothers completed questionnaires on child temperament, child behavior problems, parenting stress, and demographic information. At 36 months, children received an evaluation to assess behavioral and emotional difficulties. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]
