LAGOS-LUCIANO, Juan et al. Adaptative behavior in chilean students with intellectual disability: differences by gender and age. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2022, vol.31, n.1, pp.27-32. ISSN 2631-2581.

Adaptive Behavior (CA) is a set of skills learned and performed by people in their daily lives, which are categorized in the conceptual, social and practical domains. The objective of the research was to compare the CA skills according to sex and age range (under 10, between 10 and 16 and over 16) of the participants. A comparative-correlational design was used, which evaluated 457 students (between 5 and 18 years old) with the ABAS-II questionnaire. The results report that CA does not have significant differences when compared by sex, but in age ranges. Downward associations were observed as age increases when relating conceptual skills to social and practical domains. It is concluded that there are no differences in skills according to sex, but there are differences by age ranges and high positive correlations in the younger group, which tend to decrease in the other groups as they advance in age. It is believed necessary to continue deepening the evaluation of CA in children of typical development using the four dimensions of the instrument (conceptual, social, practical, work) in order to obtain results that allow generating comprehensive support for the better development of boys and girls.
