Scales for Diagnosing ADHD (SCALES)

Scales for Diagnosing ADHD (SCALES)
  • Ages: 5 through 18
  • Administration: Individual
  • Normed

A new assessment tool that identifies and evaluates Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in children, the SCALES breaks new ground in the assessment of ADHD by combining several notable features, including the flexibility to evaluate a child's behavior using either normative benchmarks or DSM-IV-TR criteria. Also included: four separate normative samples, items that immediately address the child's ability to function within both school and home environments. The SCALES is modeled after the guidelines for ADHD in Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-4th Ed.-Text Rev. (DSM-IV-TR). It evaluates the child's behavior using three subtests to measure inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

  • Four separate normative samples
  • Normative benchmarks or criteria matching
