Predicting Adaptive Behavior from the Bayley Scales of Infant Development.
Hotard, Stephen; McWhirter, Richard
To examine the proportion of variance in adaptive functioning predictable from mental ability, chronological age, I.Q., evidence of brain malfunction, seizure medication, and receptive and expressive language scores, 25 severely and profoundly retarded institutionalized persons (2-19 years old) were administered the Bayley Infant Scale Mental Scale. Variables were entered as predictors in a standard multiple regression analysis, and criterion variables were obtained from independent ratings on the Behavioral Characteristics Progression scale in the areas of motor development, auditory perception, drinking, dressing, undressing, oral hygiene, toilet hygiene, and interpersonal skills. Results indicated that the predictors were significantly able to predict the adaptive behaviors, except for feeding. (Author/CL)
