To diagnose a mental disorder or evaluate a disability claim, clinicians must assess functional impairment--not just the presence of symptoms.
Meeting a key need, the Barkley Functional Impairment Scale (BFIS for Adults) is the first empirically based, norm-referenced tool designed to evaluate possible impairment in 15 major domains of psychosocial functioning in adults.
Featuring both self-report and other-report forms (for example, spouse, parent, or sibling), the BFIS is reliable, valid, and user friendly.
The long version takes the average adult 5-7 minutes to complete, and the Quick Screen takes only 3-5 minutes.
Complete instructions for scoring and interpreting the scale are provided. QUICK VIEWWhat does it do?: Assesses psychosocial impairments in 15 domains of major life activities. Age Range: 18-89Administration Time: Long Form: 5-7 minutes.
