  • Clinical Judgment, Second Edition

    In 2005, AAIDD published the first edition of Clinical Judgment to assist clinicians in making decisions or recommendations that were of high quality, valid, and precise. This need was becoming increasingly important as the field of intellectual disability was moving to a community-based service delivery system in which the concepts of equity, inclusion, self-determination, and empowerment were merging with the supports paradigm and the self-advocacy movement. Thus, clinicians were being asked to formulate high-stakes decisions and recommendations that frequently required a level of competency that extended beyond their formal training. In this second edition, the authors maintain their focus on the use of clinical judgment in situations involving diagnosis, classification, and planning supports. In addition they have synthesized evaluative input from colleagues and literature-based critiques and have extended their analysis and evaluation of the role of clinical judgment in decision making.

              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.

                          By Robert L. Schalock, Sharon A. Borthwick-Duffy, Valerie J. Bradley,  Wil H.E. Buntinx, David L. Coulter,  Ellis M. (Pat) Craig, ; Sharon C. Gomez,  Yves Lachapelle, Ruth Luckasson, Alya Reeve,  Karrie A. Shogren,  Martha E. Snell, Scott Spreat, Marc J. Tassé, James R. Thompson,  Miguel A. Verdugo-Alonso,  Michael L. Wehmeyer, and Mark H. Yeager

                          This manual contains the most current and authoritative information and knowledge on intellectual disability, including best practice guidelines on diagnosing and classifying intellectual disability and developing a system of supports for people living with an intellectual disability.  Written by a committee of 18 experts, Intellectual Disability: Definition, Classification, and Systems of Supports (11th edition) is based on seven years of work on: (1) a synthesis of current information and best practices regarding intellectual disability; (2) numerous reviews and critiques of the 10th edition of the AAIDD definition manual; and (3) feedback from the field regarding a series of articles published by the Committee. This is the first official AAIDD definition manual with the terminology “Intellectual Disability.”

                          Featuring Best Practice Guidelines and Discussion for Professionals

                           Here’s how you can benefit from this best practice manual:  
                          • Learn an authoritative definition and diagnostic system of intellectual disability designed to give you a thorough and step-by-step understanding of all the factors that go into determining intellectual disability.
                          • Consult expert guidelines on critical issues such as the role of assessment in the diagnostic process, challenges faced in quantifying intelligence, evaluating the role of IQ in making a diagnosis, and how to assess adaptive behavior.
                          • Understand key clinical judgment strategies to enhance the validity and precision of a clinician’s decision on the diagnosis of intellectual disability.
                          • Discover the relationship between the AAIDD System and other diagnostic systems.
                          • Read detailed discussions on the 10 dimensions of support areas in a person’s life and various approaches to individualized service planning.
                          • Learn about the unique needs of people with intellectual disability with higher IQs.
                          • Learn how to apply the AAIDD Definition System within special education systems, public policy initiatives, and provider organizations.

                          User's Guide
                          This practical User's Guide to the 2010 AAIDD Intellectual Disability: Definition, Classification, and Systems of Supports manual informs clinicians, educators, policy makers, and program managers how to implement the various components of the AAIDD definition system in their specific job settings. The authors discuss the contemporary relevance of the supports-based AAIDD definition in the context of issues ranging from special education practices and IDEA mandates, to diagnosing individuals with higher IQ and conducting retroactive diagnoses. Policy makers and program managers will benefit from discussions on how the supports paradigm can improve quality outcomes, and how the current system incorporates the consensus in the field to utilize a supportsbased approach.

                          “The 11th edition of the AAIDD Definition Manual continues our progress in both describing a person with an intellectual disability in several dimensions, not solely based on IQ or Adaptive Behavior, and integrating further the concept of supports into the definition and practice.  Refinements based on an extensive feedback system, both in the field and in peer-reviewed literature are incorporated making the 11th edition the most advanced tool of its kind.”

                              Person-Centered Planning with the SIS-A Version: A Gu...

                              This guide is designed for use after the Support Intensity Scale—Adult Version (SIS—A) has been administered, as a practical way to assist planning team members in using the results to develop individual-specific support plans. The guide does not require the participation of those who were involved in administering the SIS—A. The intent is to assist teams in pursuing the type of personalized supports planning that meaningfully enhances a person’s quality of life.  This structured 18-step process begins with reviewing SIS—A assessment results and ends with outlining a weekly schedule in which settings, activities, and supports are unambiguously identified. The outcome of the process is a “24-7” support plan for a typical week. Settings and activities for the week, based on the preferences and interests of the person who is the focus of the planning team’s efforts, are aligned with the specific supports the person needs to be fully engaged. Four of the 18 steps require information from each planning team member individually, and multiple copies of the forms for each of those 4 steps are included with the guide for ease of use.

                              Implementing this process generally requires at least four face-to-face meetings, although some variability is possible, depending on the team and the time frame:

                              • Phase 1, steps 1-11: the SIS—A results are reviewed, initial long-term goals and support needs corresponding to each SIS—A domain are identified, and support needs that go across domains are identified.
                              • Phase 2, steps 12-15: culminates with each team member contributing to the prioritization of goals, settings, and activities. 
                              • Phase 3, steps 16-17: supports are identified to address the priorities established in Phase 2. At this point, the support plan for a typical week is established, and implementation begins.
                              • Phase 4, step 18: team members meet to evaluate progress made on the plan, discuss any unforeseen obstacles, identify potential solutions, and plan future follow-up.

The protocol should be completed by a reviewer in consultation with at least two respondents who know the person being assessed well. The protocol focuses on possible significant changes due to important life events and/or health or behavioral concerns, or in 21 SIS—A items particularly critical to understanding the support need domains  of the SIS—A. At the conclusion of the protocol, a determination is made as to whether the person’s support needs have or have not changed in important ways, and, if so, the planning team includes a description of the next steps required.
