The Social Emotional Assets and Resilience Scales (SEARS) measures social-emotional competencies of children with a multiple-perspective approach - self, parent, and teacher. Created as a strength-based assessment, the SEARS is closely tied to the positive psychology movement and focuses on a child’s assets and strengths.
The SEARS can be used with children and adolescents who exhibit a variety of clinical problems or who are at high risk for developing such problems, particularly high-functioning autism or Asperger’s disorder (pervasive developmental disorder [PDD] spectrum), conduct disorders, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and internalizing disorders.
The SEARS can be administered and scored online via PARiConnect. All PARiConnect purchases made directly through ACER include dedicated local support. Contact our Customer Service Team to set up your account today.
