Summary: The PDDBI was developed originally in 1997 to address these issues. In general, the PDDBI was developed with several primary goals in mind: To provide an assessment of autism that results in age-standardized scores ; To create items that measure both problem behaviors and social communications skills relevant to autism ; To include separate inventories for parents and teachers, in order to address the issue of generalization ; To include a measurement system that has been shown to be useful in measuring responsiveness to intervention and/or detecting change ; and, To create an assessment tool that would be sensitive to, and useful for, multiple applications.
