These evaluations shall include: Scaled measures of adaptive functioning, preferably using the ‘Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales’ Edition II or III; Assessing Intelligence Quotient (I.Q.) or range if unable to determine precise IQ, to determine intellectual functioning and capacity. Diagnosis of a developmental disability, which may include an intellectual disability (including severity thereof, e.g. mild, moderate, severe, or profound) as defined by the most recent amendments to the Virginia Code (https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title37.2/chapter1/section37.2-100/); Assessment of functional limitations in adaptive skills, including, but not limited to: receptive and expressive language, learning, self-care, self-direction, home living, social skills, health and safety, and work or capacity for independent living.

In the event the client is unable to be engaged in cognitive testing, the Contractor shall state the reason in the evaluation and offer an assessment of intellectual functioning based on the clinical interview and/or other administered testing.
