Behavioral Inflexibility in IDD Outcome Measurement

Behavioral Inflexibility in IDD Outcome Measurement

This project will develop and validate a novel outcome measure targeting the behavioral inflexibility in children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

The overall objective of this application is to develop and validate a new measure, the Repetitive and Inflexible Behavior Inventory (RIBI), with the primary goal of developing a measure that is sensitive to change over time. The RIBI is designed as a parent report measure for children (ages 3 -18) with IDD. The rationale is that a novel measure is needed to (a) capture the range of repetitive inflexible behaviors that are found in children with IDD across a variety of idiopathic and genetic disorders, (b) measure the functional impact of these behaviors on the family’s daily life, and (c) detect change over time when these behaviors are the target of intervention.
