Description: The Vineland-3 is an individually administered measure of adaptive behavior.  It is widely used in the assessment of individuals with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities. 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.

It is available in three administration forms online and on paper:

  • Interview Form – completed by a professional who interviews a respondent (typically, but not necessarily, a parent) who can report knowledgably on the adaptive behavior of the examinee.
  • Parent/Caregiver Form – is completed by a parent, caregiver, or other respondent who describes the examiniee’s adaptive behavior using a rating scale format.
  • Teacher Form – is completed by a teacher or daycare provider who describes the examinee’s adaptive behavior in the school (including preschool) or structured daycare setting using a questionnaire format.

The Interview and Parent/Caregiver Forms provide normative scores across the lifespan, from birth through age 90 +. The Teacher Form provides normative data for use with examinees ages 3 through 21. The examinee is reported on by a parent, caregiver, or teacher, but he or she does not participate in the assessment. Each form has a Comprehensive (full-length) and Domain-Level (abbreviated) versions of each form. Each of the forms can be administered online or on paper. Pearson Q-global (Web-based) & Hand-scoring available.
