Using methods derived from the study of typically developing children, developmentalists have learned about the mentally retarded childs own development in a variety of areas. These areas encompass many aspects of cognition, language, social and adaptive functioning, as well as of maladaptive behaviour and psychopathology. In addition to a focus on individuals with mental retardation themselves, familial and other ecological factors have entered developmental approaches to mental retardation.
