This study deals with the singularly perturbed initial value problem for a quasilinear first-order delay differential equation. A numerical method is generated on a grid that is constructed adaptively from a knowledge of the exact solution, which involves appropriate piecewise-uniform mesh on each time subinterval. An error analysis shows that the method is first order convergent except for a logarithmic factor, in the discrete maximum norm, independently of the perturbation parameter. The parameter uniform convergence is confirmed by numerical computations.
