Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales: II Profile of Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Yang, Sabrina; Paynter, Jessica M.; Gilmore, Linda
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v46 n1 p64-73 Jan 2016
Adaptive behaviour is a crucial area of assessment for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This study examined the adaptive behaviour profile of 77 young children with ASD using the Vineland-II, and analysed factors associated with adaptive functioning. Consistent with previous research with the original Vineland a distinct autism profile of Vineland-II age equivalent scores, but not standard scores, was found. Highest scores were in motor skills and lowest scores were in socialisation. The addition of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule calibrated severity score did not contribute significant variance to Vineland-II scores beyond that accounted for by age and nonverbal ability. Limitations, future directions, and implications are discussed.
