Product Details

BASC-3 uses a comprehensive set of rating scales and forms to provide a complete picture of a child's or adolescent’s behaviour and emotions. 

Benefits

  • Differentiate between hyperactivity and attention problems 
  • Identify behaviour problems as required by IDEA, and for developing FBAs, BIPs, and IEPs.
  • Strong base of theory and research gives a thorough set of highly interpretable scales.
  • Access to efficient and extensive reports using computer scoring and interpretation.

Features

BASC-3 applies a triangulation method for gathering information. It analyzes a child’s behaviour from three perspectives: self, teacher, and parent.

  • Teacher Rating Scales (TRS) measure adaptive and problem behaviours in the preschool or school setting.
  • Parent Rating Scales (PRS) measure both adaptive and problem behaviours in the community and home setting.
  • Parenting Relationship Questionnaire (PRQ).
  • Self-Report of Personality (SRP) provides insight into a child’s or adult’s thoughts and feelings.
  • Student Observation System (SOS) enables clinicians and other qualified observers to code and record direct observations of a child’ behaviour in a classroom setting.
  • Structured Developmental History (SDH) offers a comprehensive history and background survey that supplies a thorough review of social, psychological, developmental, educational, and medical information on the child.

Training

Basc-3 Training is coming soon 

This 3-hour session examines the current mental health crisis facing our students and discusses how a broadband assessment of behavior can be used to evaluate the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students. Specifically, the session explores how components of the BASC–3 can be used to identify mental health issues and how results from these assessments can be used in the interpretation process and to guide BASC–3 interventions and supports. Participants have access to this session for one year.
