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 Rating Form contains 70 items, is completed by a parent and takes approximately 5-10 minutes to administer.
The Parent Rating Form has two Clinical Scales (Internalising and Externalising) and two Adaptive Scales (Social Skills and Competence).
The responses are entered into the CAB-SP for instant scoring and reporting.
