Terrasi, Salvatore; Airasian, Peter W.
Psychology in the Schools, v26 n2 p202-08 Apr 1989
Examined relationship between social system adaptive behavior, measured by Adaptive Behavior Inventory for Children, and intelligence, measured by Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised, in 100 special needs students, ages 6-11. Results support existence of 2 distinct factors among instrument subscales, with each factor composed primarily of either intelligence or adaptive behavior subscales, supporting discriminant validity of 2 measures.
