Front Cover
Guilford Press, Feb 1, 2011 - Psychology - 150 pages
The Barkley Adult ADHD Rating Scale-IV (BAARS-IV) offers an essential tool for assessing current ADHD symptoms and domains of impairment as well as recollections of childhood symptoms. Directly linked to DSM-IV diagnostic criteria, the scale includes both self-report and other-report forms (for example, spouse, parent, or sibling). Not only is the BAARS-IV empirically based, reliable, and valid, but itis also exceptionally convenient to use. Purchasers get a limited license to photocopy the scales and score sheets, yielding considerable cost savings over other available scales. The long version takes the average adult 5-7 minutes to complete; the Quick Screen takes only 3-5 minutes. Special features include a section of items assessing the newly identified symptoms of sluggish cognitive tempo, also known as the inattentive-only subtype of ADHD.
