Objective : To develop the evaluation of behavior problems for assessing behavioral
progression of intellectual disability children in Psychological Service, Rajanukul Institute.
Methods : The evaluation of behavior problems for children with intellectual disability
was developed. Initially, the original framework of the evaluation of behavior problems
was drafted from qualitative procedures; for example, reviewing relevant documents
and research studies both in Thailand and international countries, observation of client
behavior and conducting a focus group in experienced clinical psychologists. The
evaluation draft was evaluated by content validity or using index of item-objective
congruence (IOC) from 5 experts and interrater reliability testing between 2 observers
using 32 subjects. The acceptable result of interrater reliability testing is reliability
coefficient above 80%.
Results : The evaluation of behavior problems for children with intellectual disability
consist of 4 versions such as for 0-2 years (19 items), 3-5 years (35 items), 6-12 years
(35 items) and 13-18 years and 7 domains of behaviour problems in children with
intellectual disability (self-control, attention, perception and follow an order, emotion,
inappropriate behaviour, social behaviour and other behavior problems). Over 80
percent of experts’ agreement for version of 3-18 years was approved (IOC > 0.5);
however, the evaluation for 0 - 2 years should be improved. In interrater reliability
testing, there is acceptable reliability coefficient for all versions (> 80 percent).
Conclusion: The evaluation of behavior problems can be used to assess behavior
problems of children with intellectual disability; especially, in the setting of behavioural
modification, Psychological Service, Rajanukul Institute.
