An indispensable guide for professionals using the popular Behavior Assessment System for Children (BASC), this book provides in-depth coverage of all BASC components, their uses, clinical and research applications, and interpretation. Written by BASC originators Cecil R. Reynolds and Randy W. Kamphaus, the book demonstrates the use of the system in clinical work with children with ADHD, behavior problems, depression, and many other conditions. Important research studies are presented and applications discussed for program evaluation, screening and early intervention research, diagnosis, treatment design, and treatment monitoring. The book contains numerous illustrative case studies. Other invaluable features are tables guiding the interpretation of deviant scores for each scale; several new subscales, including a Frontal Lobe/Executive Function scale; detailed coverage of forensic applications; and useful appendices, including a Spanish-language informational handout for parents.
