Abstract

The current research is essential for parents, teachers and experts to diagnosis the adaptive behavior problems among students with and without learning disabilities. Firstly, 20 experts were interviewed to generate pool of 64 items. After elimination, 44 items was piloted on 100 student’s teachers, as a report measure of 5-point rating scale. Lastly, 10 teachers of 100 students were given the final list of 44 items, Vinland Adaptive Behavior Scale (Saleem&Mahmood, 2011). In the result, Factor analysis distributed the scale into two factors, Adjustable Behavior and Non-Adjustable Behavior. Factors correlation shows that (AAB) scale significant negatively correlated with (NAAB) scale. Scale shows high reliability i.e. Adjustable Adaptive Behavior (.95), Non-adjustable Adaptive Behavior (.61), and total reliability is (.86). Factors show a negative correlation with each other and with overall Adaptive Behavior. Thescale shows a significant correlation with Vinland (ABS). The results revealed that the developed scale is valid.
