Article
Research shows that people with intellectual disability (ID) face public stigma. However, a recently published narrative review suggests that this phenomenon has not been explored in a Latin American country. This study fills the gap in our understanding of public stigma towards people with intellectual disability in Chile. 395 adults from the gene...
Article
Background: People with intellectual disability in Chile face individual and collective barriers to social participation. Lack of knowledge about their rights and tools for effective self-advocacy seem to be key elements that need to be improved to facilitate participation. Method: We present PaísDI, a 16 h long manualised program created by selfa...
Article
Background: Given the importance of adaptive behaviour (AB) for the identification of intellectual disability and the design of intervention plans for people with Down syndrome (DS), this cross- sectional study explored AB in infants with DS, compared to infants with typical development (TD). Method: we evaluated 60 infants (10–36 months) with ABAS...
Article
Home Literacy Environment (HLE) plays a fundamental role in the development of reading and writing skills in children. Evidence suggests differences in HLE components based on cultural and idiosyncratic characteristics. Most studies show a relationship between contextual variables with the quality of HLE in typically developing (TD) children. There...
Article

Background: People with intellectual disabilities have been historically excluded from decision-making processes. Previous literature indicates that increasing social participation may be an effective way to address this exclusion, but no systematic review of interventions designed to increase social participation of people with intellectual disa...
Article
Background Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) may be especially vulnerable to changes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic given increased likelihood of health concerns, low socioeconomic status, and difficulty accessing services. Aims The purpose of this study was to explore mental health problems and services in...
Article
Background There is little literature that has explored the paternal role among children with intellectual disabilities. The aim of the study is to characterise parental attitudes and styles of fathers of children with intellectual disabilities, and to analyse their relation to the children's adaptive behaviour. Method Eighty‐three families (fathe...

Studies have shown that executive function abilities are related and have predictive power over adaptive behaviour in both typical and atypical populations. This study examined the relationship between executive functioning and adaptive behaviour in adolescents with Down syndrome, as it has not been studied before in this population. We propose and...
Article
Background Several studies show that socio‐economic status (SES) is related to the developmental trajectories of children with typical development (TD). However, few studies have analysed this relationship regarding children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as Down syndrome (DS). In this paper, we analyse the impact of SES in the neurodevelop...
Chapter
Motivation is a psychological construct that refers to the disposition to act and direct behavior according to a goal. Like most of psychological processes, motivation develops throughout the life span and is influenced by both biological and environmental factors. The aim of this chapter is to summarize research on the development of motivation fr...

Executive functions (EF) are a set of processes that allow individuals to plan, monitor and organize tasks and thus play a key role in the development of reading and maths skills. Environmental factors such as socioeconomic level (SEL) influence reading and maths skills as well as EFs. The aim of this study is to explore the extent to which executi...
Article
This study explores children’s ability to discriminate between regional accents in Spanish. One hundred and seven Chilean children aged three to seven years old were asked to differentiate whether two sentences were spoken with the same accent or not. Results indicate that the ability to differentiate between regional accents emerges around age fiv...
Article

This paper addresses the problem of anxiety related to traditional assessment, which can affect assessment outcomes and underestimate the performance of subjects. Invisible assessment makes it possible to evaluate subjects without making them feel like they are being evaluated. Invisible evaluation tests were developed for touch screen tablets for...

TENI (Test de Evaluación Neuropsicológica Infantil) is an instrument developed to assess cognitive abilities in children between 3 and 9 years of age. It is based on a model that incorporates games and technology as tools to improve the assessment of children's capacities. The test was standardized with two Chilean samples of 524 and 82 children li...
Article
In this study the relationship between skills to distinguish musical variables and phonological awareness was studied in children between six and eight years of age. Previous studies in English report a connection between these skills; however, no studies of this kind have been done in Spanish. The results of this study indicate that this relations...

Project
To generate scientific knowledge about informal and formal caregiving of dependent older people and people with intellectual and developmental disability, through the characterization of caregiving from an integral perspective and the development of suitable evidence-based interventions. In order to achieve this, MICARE is based on three principles: i) the definition of “caregiving” through an integral perspective which includes not only negative but also positive outcomes. ii) the rights-based approach which considers not only caregivers’ but also care-recipients' rights. iii) the study of both, informal and formal caregiving.
Project
To identify and organize the factors associated with social participation interventions having a positive impact on social inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities; and to provide a set of best of practices for future interventions.
Project
We want to explore the relation between parenting practices and attitudes and the development of children and adolescents with Intellectual disabilities
