The Rochester Adaptive Behavior Inventory: A Parallel Series of Instruments for Assessing Social Competence during Early and Middle Childhood and Adolescence
Garmezy (1970) and Jones (1973) have stressed the importance of developing age-appropriate measures of social competence throughout the childhood years and of relating these measures to behavioral and psychiatric outcomes of interest. Immediate objectives of such research would be both to provide predictors of poor psychiatric outcomes in order to identify children at “high-risk” for adaptive failure and to guide efforts aimed at early remediation and prevention by pinpointing specific deficit areas.
