  • Assesses 11 essential skill areas within three major adaptive domains: Conceptual, Social, and Practical
  • Identifies adaptive behavior strengths and weaknesses
  • Integrates assessment, intervention planning, and progress monitoring

Normative Data

Normative Data

The ABAS-3 includes five rating forms, each for a specific age range and type of respondent. These forms can be completed by parents, family members, teachers, daycare staff, supervisors, counselors, or others who are familiar with the daily activities of the individual being evaluated. Individuals in the adult age range can self-evaluate using the Adult Form. All forms are also available in Spanish.

Research forms were completed by 7,737 respondents who reported on the adaptive behavior of 4,500 individuals. The sample is proportionate to the US population in terms of gender, race/ethnicity, and education level (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2010). Three independent samples were collected:

  • Infant and Preschool (ages 0­­­–5; Parent/Primary Caregiver and Teacher/Daycare Provider forms)
  • School (ages 5–21; Parent and Teacher forms)
  • Adult (ages 16–89; Adult Form, self-report and rated by others)
