A Factor-Analytic Study of Adaptive Behavior and Intellectual Functioning in Learning Disabled Children

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The problem of this study was to determine the relationship between measures of intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior among learning disabled children. The purposes of this study were to analyze the factorial structure of intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior among learning disabled (LD) children and to determine whether or not these constructs were significantly interrelated for this population. Data for the study were obtained by the use of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - Revised (WISC-R) and Zeitlin's Coping Inventory (CI). To facilitate the investigation, four research guestions were posed. The population for the study consisted of 160 LD ... continued below

The purposes of this study were to analyze the factorial structure of intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior among learning disabled (LD) children and to determine whether or not these constructs were significantly interrelated for this population. Data for the study were obtained by the use of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - Revised (WISC-R) and Zeitlin's Coping Inventory (CI). To facilitate the investigation, four research guestions were posed. The population for the study consisted of 160 LD students from Cooke County, Texas. Scaled scores from the WISC-R and CI were analyzed on 48 girls and 112 boys, ranging in age from 6-3 to 16-2 years. Statistical treatment included separate factor analyses of WISC-R and CI scaled scores, the analysis by canonical correlation of data combined from both tests to investigate the possibility of significant interrelatedness, an analysis of combined test data for principal factors, and an exposition of central tendency measures from both tests.
