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 behavior

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.

Multipurpose Vineland-3

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:

  • Support diagnosis of intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism, and developmental delays
  • Determine eligibility or qualification for special services
  • Plan rehabilitation or intervention programs
  • Track and report progress

Many applications

With Vineland-3 you can measure adaptive behavior of individuals with:

  • Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
  • Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs)
  • ADHD
  • Post-traumatic brain injury
  • Hearing impairment
  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s disease

  • Adaptive Behavior Profiles in Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Presenter: Celine Saulnier, Ph.D.

    Deficits in adaptive behavior are, by definition, criteria for Intellectual Disability. Yet in autism, adaptive delays tend to be above and beyond what would be expected based on cognitive impairments, alone. This gap between cognition and adaptive behavior appears to widen with age and impedes functional independence into adulthood. Moreover, patterns of strengths and weaknesses within adaptive domains raise concerns about the use of composite scores that wash out significant differences. This presentation will outline these profiles of adaptive behavior and discuss the importance of assessing for and teaching adaptive skills from initial diagnosis of ASD throughout the lifespan.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define adaptive behavior & differentiate adaptive behavior from cognition or ability
    2. Describe common profiles of adaptive functioning in ASD for individuals with and without cognitive impairment
    3. Identify effective treatment strategies for enhancing adaptive functioning
