The standard for measuring self-sufficiency
For over 30 years, Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales has been a leading measure of personal and social skills needed for everyday living. Psychologists and other professionals continue to depend on it to identify individuals who have Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, developmental delays, autism spectrum disorders, and other impairments. Not only does Vineland aid in diagnosis, but it gives you valuable information for developing educational and treatment plans.
Covers the full spectrum of adaptive behaviour
All Vineland-3 forms aid in diagnosing and classifying intellectual and developmental disabilities and other disorders, such as autism, Asperger Syndrome, and developmental delays. The scales are organized using three domains--Communication, Daily Living Skills, and Socialization--that correspond to the three broad domains of adaptive functioning specified by the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and by DSM-5. In addition, Vineland-3 offers optional Motor Skills and Maladaptive Behavior domains for situations in which these areas are of concern.
In whatever setting you work—education, social services, health care, criminal justice, or the military—like its predecessor, Vineland-3 helps you perform a variety of tasks:
- Measure adaptive behaviour of individuals with:
- Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs)
- Post-traumatic brain injury
- Hearing impairment
- Dementia Alzheimer's disease
- Determine eligibility or qualification for special services
- Plan rehabilitation or intervention programs
- Track and report progress
The Vineland-3 can be handscored or digitally scored and administered via Q-global.
N.B. Please note that the norm tables are not in the manual for this edition of the Vineland but are available online and can be downloaded as a PDF document.
Online administration will be made available for all forms through Q-global.
Reports will offer all components, including:
- All raw and norm-referenced scores
- Narrative text describing scores
- Multi-rater comparisons when Interview or Parent/Caregiver Form is given along with Teacher Form
- Comparison to prior results when available for monitoring progress.
