The standard for measuring self-sufficiency

Since the beginning, 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 Vinelandaid in diagnosis, but it gives you valuable information for developing educational and treatment plans.

Covers the full spectrum of adaptive behavior

All Vineland-II forms aid in diagnosing and classifying intellectual and developmental disabilities and other disorders, such as autism, Asperger Syndrome, and developmental delays. The scales of the Vineland II were organized within a three domain structure: Communication, Daily Living, and Socialization. This structure corresponds to the three broad domains of adaptive functioning by the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Conceptual, Practical, and Social. In addition, Vineland-II offers a Motor Skills Domain and an optional Maladaptive Behavior Index to provide more in-depth information about your clients.

Multipurpose Vineland-II

In whatever setting you work—education, social services, health care, criminal justice, or the military—like its predecessor,Vineland-II 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-II 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

More flexibility with four forms

  • Survey Interview Form provides a targeted assessment of adaptive behavior. You administer the survey to a parent or caregiver using a semistructured interview format. This approach gathers more indepth information with its open-ended questions and promotes rapport between the interviewer and respondent.
  • Parent/Caregiver Rating Form covers the same content as the Survey Interview, but uses a rating scale format. This alternative approach works when time or access is limited. The Parent/Caregiver Rating Form is also a valuable tool for progress monitoring. Use the Survey Interview Form on the initial assessment and track progress by using the Parent/Caregiver Rating Form.
  • Expanded Interview Form provides an in-depth alternative to the Survey Interview form with more items. Particularly suitable for ages 0 to 5 or to help facilitate detailed program planning for low functioning individuals.
  • Teacher Rating Form assesses adaptive behavior for students in school, preschool, or a structured day care setting. This form uses a questionnaire format completed by the teacher or day care provider. The Teacher Rating Form contains the same Domains as the Survey Forms but covers content that a teacher would observe in a classroom setting. Targeted and comprehensive, the form lets you evaluate a student’s functioning in a single domain or any combination of domains. An adaptive Behavior Composite score is provided when all four domains are administered
