        Diagnostic Adaptive Behavior Scale User's Manual

        The Diagnostic Adaptive Behavior Scale (DABS) is now available. The DABS is an instrument for assessing the adaptive behavior of people between the ages of 4 and 21 for the purpose of determining whether the person meets the second criterion for a diagnosis of intellectual disability (ID). The second criterion is a significant limitation in adaptive behavior as expressed in conceptual, social, and practical adaptive skills. The DABS is a norm-referenced instrument that uses data obtained from an interview with a respondent who knows the person very well.

        This product is the user’s manual for the DABS and includes a sample copy of the interview form. Bundle packs of interview forms are also available in the bookstore.

        The DABS has a number of unique features that support its precision, accuracy, validity, and credibility in making a diagnosis of ID, including:

        • Measures some aspects of adaptive behavior that are not currently measured by other standardized instruments, including naiveté, gullibility, and technology-based skills.
        • Designed using item response theory (IRT) and reliably measure individual performance levels across the continuum of adaptive skills and ages.
        • Provides precise information to assist users in determining significant limitations in adaptive behavior.

              This unique book constructs a new way to view the cultural contributions of the lives of people with ID. The legacy of people with ID is as meaningful and important as any other, and this idea is explored through individual stories set within the social and cultural construction of the idea of disability. The book is intended to be instrumental in moving toward a new moral community. A wide range of relevant literature is reviewed, to consider quality of life and the history of treatment of people with ID. The importance of social context in defining ID is stressed, as is the role of supports in ensuring participation of people with ID in the meaningful activity of everyday life.

                  Community Living and Participation for People With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is an exploration of how to create the ideal conditions to facilitate community living and participation for people with IDD. The book addresses the complex and ever-evolving dimensions related to both the place of community and the feeling of community, including living arrangements, work, other daytime activities, financial resources, relationships, personal interests, health and well-being, faith, opportunities for learning and personal growth, self-determination and informed decision making, and rights and responsibilities as a citizen. The following topics are addressed specifically: using person-centered and positive support practices, housing, employment, social inclusion and relationships, self-determination and self-advocacy, supported decision making, health and wellness, planning for healthy and engaged aging, practices that promote quality outcomes, and the direct support workforce.

                  Each chapter includes advance organizers, discussion questions, and a resource list. The book is ideal as an ancillary textbook at the undergraduate or graduate levels and as a staff development tool.
