ABSTRACT

The objective of this research is to study the difference of evaluation between teachers and parents on mental retardation according to their gender, age, and intelligence by using K-SIB-R(Korean-Scales of Independent Behavior-Revised). The subjects of study are parents and teachers who have children of mental retardations. The totally used 148 questionnaires for statistics. The K-SIB-R questionnaire, used for this study, are for the checking of general independence behavior and abnormal behavior. The subjects of K-SIB-R are originally parent of mental retardation. But teacher must be one of important observes for mental retardation related with school life. So this report researched which will be able to generalize an adaptional behavior evaluation with only recognition of the parents. The results are as following. First, The adaptional behavior, general independence behavior and abnormal behavior were not difference according to their gender of children. According to age the adaptional behavior were not difference. But the general independence behavior were statistically difference in the group which children are between 4 years 2 months old and 7 years 1 months, and abnormal behavior were difference in the group of 10 years 4 months or more years old. Finally, according to intelligence the adaptional behavior were statistically difference in the group which the intelligence of children are between 40 and 55, and then 56 and 70. And the general independence behavior were not difference statistically in the group which intelligent score of children are 40 or more than, but were difference the group under 40 score of intelligent. And abnormal behavior were statistically difference in the group which the intelligence of children are between 40 and 55, and then 56 and 70. Second, the rating between the parents and teachers showed statistically a similar correlation results. Therefore, on the basis of this research data, the evaluation of parents using K-SIB-R is enough to analysis on normal behavior for mental retardation. If not only the test of parents also teachers are possible, they will be more accurate and objective evaluate for adaptional behavior of mental retardation.
