Use of Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales-II in Children with Autism--An Indian Experience
Manohari, S. M.; Raman, Vijaya; Ashok, M. V.
Journal of Indian Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health, v9 n1 p5-12 2013
The Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales-II Edition 2005 (Vineland-II) is useful in assessing abilities in autism spectrum disorder, where an accurate assessment of intelligence using standardized tools is difficult both due to the unique social and communication difficulties that these children present with and the behavioral issues that occur as co-morbidity. We describe the scale and our experience in using the scale. Difficulties in administration of the scale to Indian children are illustrated. The main reasons for these difficulties center on cultural differences in gender roles an differences in the way some self-care tasks are performed. (Contains 2 tables.)
