This present study has as its aim to evaluate, through the EPM questionnaire, the level of adolescents’ adaptation in preparatory course for "Vestibular", in the region of ABC. This questionnaire is an instrument that aims to detect problems of adaptation more accentuated. The concept of adaptation is used in this assignment is proposed by Simon 1989. The participants of this study were 36 adolescents from both sexes; aging between 16 to 20, 18 of them presented more than 25% "YES" answers and only one had more than 50% of "YES" answers. This result of 25% or more "YES" answer indicates that these adolescents show a loss in the adaptation effectiveness. Because of this, they will be indicated to a preventive clinic interview, which is going to be evaluated by EDAO in subsequent assignment.
