Table 2 summarizes scores obtained using the British Ability Scales, the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
and The Gilliam Autism Rating Scales over a three year period.

5 and 58 and Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
scores between 38 and 63 at the beginning of treatment were re-evaluated after 4 years of treatment through the Rutgers Autism Program.
9 The Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scale
(subscale to measure socialization) and the Harter Self-Perception Scale were used as measurement tools.
Participants in the four feedback conditions were matched for scores on the WISC-III, the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scale
, and overall classroom performance (e.
Wang said that fortunately, a post hoc analysis of a key secondary endpoint--the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
socialization score showed an impressive improvement in response to arbaclofen among the 96 patients whose serial Vineland assessments were conducted by the same trained clinician and caregiver, in accord with the study protocol.
That study examined the relationships between ratings on the IAA for students with significant disabilities, corresponding scores on the general assessment, and ratings on two norm-referenced teacher rating scales: the Academic Competence Evaluation Scales (ACES; DiPerna & Elliott, 2000) and the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
(VABS; Sparrow, Balla, & Cicchetti, 1985).
80) Furthermore, none of the trials presented information from the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
, (81) which is by far the most commonly used measure of adaptive functioning by practitioners.
This scale has demonstrated convergent validity with the Socialization subscale of the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
and the Revised Conners Ratings Scales teacher form (Lyon et al.
Figure 3 shows that the mean overall age equivalence on the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
A cohort of 38 children aged 1-7 years was compared with 63 controls in performance on a battery of cognitive, motor, language, and adaptive behavior tests, including Full Scale Intelligence Quotient tests, the Movement Assessment Battery for Children, Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration, and the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
, among others.
The Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
(VABS; Sparrow, Balla, & Cicchetti, 1984) broadly measure a person's ability to accomplish everyday self-care tasks, as well as communication, socialization, and motor skills.
