PEP-3The Psychoeducational Profile-Third Edition
A normed assessment instrument that utilizes both direct assessment and parent observations to provide information on developmental functioning in 7 developmental domains and 6 behavioral areas. This assessment instrument is designed to identify uneven and idiosyncratic learning patterns often associated with autism and other communicative disorders, and is most appropriately used with children functioning within the chronological age range of six months to seven years.
VB-MAPPThe Verbal Behavior - Milestones Assessment Placement Program
Designed to provide a representative sample of a child's existing verbal and related skills. The assessment contains 170 measureable learning and language milestones that are sequenced and balanced across three developmental levels (0-18 months, 18-30 months, and 30-48 months). The Barriers Assessment provides an assessment of 24 common learning and language acquisition barriers faced by children with autism and other developmental disabilities. The Transition Assessment is used to help identify whether a child is making meaningful progress and has acquired the skills necessary for learning in a less restrictive educational environment.
VABSThe Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales
An individually administered measure of adaptive behavior for people age 0 through 90. There are 11 Vineland-II subdomains, grouped into four domain composites: Communication, Daily Living Skills, Socialization and Motor Skills. The Maladaptive Behavior Index and the Maladaptive Behavior Critical Items make up the Maladaptive Behavior Domain.
The Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Behavior Inventory
A normed rating scale assessment that utilizes parent and teacher reports to provide information about functioning areas typically affected by PDD in children from 1 to 12 years of age. There are 6-10 standardized domains, plus 5 composite scores, including repetitive, ritualistic, and pragmatic problem behaviors; Approach/Withdrawal Problems; Expressive Social Communications; Receptive/Expressive Social Communications, and Autism Composite Score.
FBAFunctional Behavior Assessments
Conducted any time that a problem behavior is presented and needs to be reduced. FBAs can be conducted in a variety of ways, but normally begins with an indirect assessment that includes parent and teacher reports and is followed by a direct observation of the problem behavior in the natural environment. In cases where the function is more challenging to determine, an analogue functional analysis can be conducted in a controlled setting to detect changes in response rates as a result of the presentation or removal of a particular reinforcer.
