This chapter highlights the theoretical foundations that have guided research on mother—child interaction. It discusses the physical and behavioral characteristics of children with Down syndrome (DS) that influence their social interactions, then reviews research findings on mother—child interaction in these dyads. It discusses research conducted during the past decade since the review in the last Handbook of Mental Retardation (Marfo, Dedrick, & Barbour, 1998) and proposes an agenda for future research. The chapter also describes the behaviors and processes related to Williams syndrome that are likely to be relevant to mother—child interaction. It proposes a research agenda that both builds on and is distinct from that related to children with DS.

Keywords: Mother—child interaction; developmental disability; Down syndrome; Williams syndrome; social interaction
