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 it is also exceptionally convenient to use.
The long version takes the average adult 5-7 minutes to complete, and 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.
