The Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales (VABS) are a series of instruments aimed at assessing social competence. Social competence has also been termed adaptive behavior, and it has been incorporated as a major consideration in several types of disability. Adaptive behavior or social competence has been the focus of considerable measurement effort over several decades, with part of the challenge being accurate and reliable measurement.
