The Assessment of Basic Learning Abilities Test for Persons with Intellectual Disability: A Valuable Clinical Tool
Vause, Tricia; Yu, C. T.; Martin, Garry L.
Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, v20 n5 p483-489 Sep 2007
The Assessment of Basic Learning Abilities (ABLA) test requires a tester to attempt to teach to a person, using standard prompting and reinforcement procedures, six tasks that are hierarchically ordered in difficulty. Performance on the test provides valuable information for teachers and rehabilitation workers to match the difficulty of training tasks with the learning ability of persons with profound, severe and moderate intellectual disabilities. This paper summarizes the characteristics of the test, outlines the testing procedures, and reviews supporting data and practical guidelines for clinicians.
