The aim of this study was to test the validity and responsiveness of MABC-2 in children with autism spectrum disorder in Tehran city.
Materials and Methods: The research method is descriptive-cross sectional. The statistical population consisted of all children and adolescents with autism in Tehran. 100 subjects were selected through available sampling. The research tool was MABC-2 test. The data was collected tester who were familiar with the test, and according to the manual of the test. The validity of the test was calculated through confirmatory factor analysis of the three-factor and eight-case model and the responsiveness with a two baseline measurements whit interval between the first measurement and the follow-up measurement after 6 months’ of rehabilitation. Data analysis was performed using SPSS And LISREL software (version 23, SPSS). p<0.01 was considered significant.
Results: Based on the results, the factor analysis proposed by Henderson et al confirmed. RMSEA values were 0.43 and 0.06. IFI, GFI, CFI and NFI Indicator are also larger than the desired criterion (0.9). SRM
Value were from 0.28 to o.46 for the subscales and 0.35 for the whole scales. The effect size values were from 0.30 to 1.26 for the subscales and 0.57 for the whole scales and The results of the rock curve obtained the optimal cutting point that has the best sensitivity and specificity equal 67.25.
Conclusion: It seems that this test can be used as a valid test with the ability to respond appropriately to measure the motor development of children and adolescents with autism in Tehran.
