Abstract

Background: The Child Behavior Checklist 1.5–5 (CBCL 1.5–5) has been applied to identify emotional and behavioral problems on children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, few studies explored whether the established factor model may be suitable for children with ASD and those with developmental delay (DD).

Method: To locate the potential sources of variations between these two groups, we tested measurement invariance multiple groups factor analysis.

Results: All subscales achieved the basic level of invariance (configural invariance). The findings suggested similar factor structures across these two groups. However, Withdrawn, Aggressive Behavior, and Sleep Problems did not achieve metric invariance. The findings suggested the relations between items and latent constructs are not similar across groups in these three scales.

Conclusions: Overall, there are different levels of invariances across subscales of the CBCL1.5–5. The attempt of using the CBCL1.5–5 to separate the profile of children with ASD and children with DD might be helpful, but only on particular aspects.
