    Abstract

    Results from a longitudinal study on manipulative play in normal and Down syndrome infants are discussed. Subjects were videotaped at home every two months for 18 months. Analyses focused on infants’ play activity and their communicative interaction with adults, which included mothers and other adults unknown to them. Results allow us to explain some characteristic features of the development of children with Down Syndrome, the role of adults, and their implications for early intervention programmes.
