2010) is that whereas the latter correlated the TARPA with the VABS, one subscale of which affords an indirect measure of communication ability, the current study correlated it with a widely accepted performance-based measure of language ability, namely the Preschool Language Scale.
2010) showed a correlation between performance on an initial version of the TARPA and adaptive behavior as measured by the VABS in several children with ASD.
Children in the TD group could not have ever met criteria for ASD (by parent report) or have a first-degree relative with ASD, and had to have at least a 77 on the communication and socialization VABS
In addition, the VABS
indicated that three of the four children had low adaptive levels on the socialization sub-scale and that two of the children had moderately low (Oliver) and low (Derek) adaptive levels on the communication sub-scale.
The ICD10-AM and AIS data related to %TBSA, and demographic data for adult burn cases identified from the VSTR and definitively managed at the VABS
were retrieved for analysis.
Also shown in Table 6, rate of learning each of the 1st five items for all individual programs was related to the amount of change on the VABS
and to the VABS
scores at 4 years.
The children's adaptive behavioral functioning, as measured by the VABS
composite score, rose only slightly, from 56.
Following procedures recommended by Snyder-McLean (1987) each student's baseline development rate was calculated by dividing their age-equivalent score on each domain of the VABS
by the student's chronological age.
A similar approach will be used for mental retardation/DD: Children obtaining an MSEL composite score of < 69 and a VABS
composite score of < 70 will be classified as meeting strict criteria for DD.
