Abstract:

"The Barkley Deficits in Executive Functioning Scale--Children and Adolescents (BDEFS-CA) is an empirically based tool for evaluating clinically significant dimensions of child and adolescent executive functioning. Evidence indicates that the BDEFS-CA is far more predictive of impairments in daily life activities than more time consuming and costly traditional EF tests. The BDEFS-CA offers an ecologically valid snapshot of the capacities involved in time management; organization and problem solving; self-restraint; self-motivation; and self-regulation of emotions. Provided are both a long form (10-15 minutes) and a short form (3-5 minutes) for parents to complete. There is also a short clinical interview form based on the short-form rating scale, for use in unusual circumstances where a parent is unable to complete a rating scale. Special features include an ADHD risk index in the long form. Age range: 6-17. Includes Permission to Photocopy Enhancing the convenience and value of the BDEFS-CA, the limited photocopy license allows purchasers to reproduce the forms and score sheets and yields considerable cost savings over other available scales. The large format and sturdy wire binding facilitate photocopying."--

"The Barkley Deficits in Executive Functioning Scale--Children and Adolescents (BDEFS-CA) is an empirically based tool for evaluating dimensions of executive functioning in daily life. Evidence indicates that the BDEFS-CA is far more predictive of impairments in major life activities than more time-consuming and costly traditional EF tests. The BDEFS-CA offers an ecologically valid snapshot of the capacities involved in time management; organization and problem solving; self-restraint; self-motivation; and self-regulation of emotions. Purchasers get a limited license to reproduce the forms and score sheets without the expense of reordering materials from the publisher; the large format and sturdy wire binding facilitate photocopying. Provided are both self- and other-reports in a long form (15/n-/20 minutes) and a short form (4/n-/5 minutes)"--
