The Clinical Assessment of Behavior (CAB) assesses adjustment, psychosocial strengths and weaknesses, and problem behaviours in ages 2-18 years (parent ratings) and 5-18 years (teacher ratings). It assists in the identification of children and adolescents across a wide age range who are in need of behavioural, educational, or psychiatric treatment or intervention.
Three separate rating forms (Parent Extended [CAB-PX], Parent, and Teacher) contain corresponding items, allowing parents and teachers to contribute equally to the evaluation of target behaviours.
The CAB Kit includes the CAB Software Portfolio (CAB-SP) Download that calculates raw scores, T scores, and percentiles for all scales and clusters after hand-entry of item responses. The software generates unlimited complete Score Reports and profiles for all CAB forms.
The CAB Parent Extended Rating Form contains 170 items, is completed by a parent and takes approximately 15-20 minutes to administer.
The Parent Extended Rating Form has three Clinical Scales (Internalising, Externalising and Critical Behaviors) and three Adaptive Scales (Social Skills, Competence and Adaptive Behaviors).
The responses are entered into the CAB-SP for instant scoring and reporting.
