Add to My Toolkit
Description:

A questionnaire on a child’s behavior providing scores on numerous scales. These include overarching Internalizing Problems, Externalizing Problems, and Total Problems, and specific syndrome scales (e.g., depressive, anxiety, autism spectrum, ADHD, aggression, sleep problems, somatic complaints, withdrawn behaviors). A supplemental Language Development Survey for ages 18-35 months is also included. Versions are available for report by the child’s parents, primary caregivers, or surrogates, or by the child’s daycare providers or teachers.

Specific Instructions:

The CBCL/1 ½-5 should be used when the respondent is the childs caregiver/parent. The C-TRF should be used when the respondent is the childs daycare provider or teacher. These measures may be considered when a broad assessment of a range of indicators of psychological well-being, including DSM-based scales, is desired. Both measures are proprietary. Complete scoring options require purchase of scoring materials.

It is important to indicate who completed the form (relationship to child).

Protocol:

The Child Behavior Checklist Preschool Assessment for Ages 1 ½ - 5 years is a form to rate concerns about a child’s emotional and behavioral functioning. Scores can be compared against multicultural, age, and gender norms.
