Sandford, Donald A.; Elzinga, Rob H.
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v13 n4 p195-99 Dec 1987
The domain scores of the Adaptive Behavior Scale were analyzed to investigate the factorial dimensions of problem behaviors of 106 behavior-disordered adolescents and young adults with borderline intelligence. Four major factors were identified: two identified in other studies (functional autonomy and behavior disorder), and two unique to this population (education and psychiatric disturbance).
