An adjunct to the Conners Adult ADHD Rating Scales which discusses the role of ADHD in relation to recidivism
When Attention-Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) persists into adulthood, it usually contributes to larger personal and professional difficulties. The Conners' Adult ADHD Rating Scales measure the presence and severity of ADHD symptoms so that you can determine whether ADHD is a contributing factor to your clients' difficulties. Suitable for clinical, research, rehabilitation, and correctional settings, the CAARS scales quantitatively measure ADHD symptoms across clinically significant domains, while examining the manifestations of those symptoms.
Provide a multiple-informant assessment with self-report (CAARS-S) and observer ratings (CAARS-O)
Long, short, and screening versions available
Discusses the role of ADHD in the context of recidivism, and includes data on correctional populations
Key Areas Measured
Key Areas Measured
Factor-Derived Subscales: Inattention/Memory Problems, Hyperactivity/Restlessness, Impulsivity/Emotional Lability, and Problems with Self-Concept
DSM-IV™ ADHD Symptom Subscales: Inattentive Symptoms, Total ADHD Symptoms, and Hyperactive-Impulsive Symptoms
Profile Reports summarize the results of an individual administration, providing scores for all scales.
Interpretive Reports provide detailed information about scores from a single administration, presented both numerically and graphically. An individual's scores are compared to those in the normative sample and elevations at the scale and subscale level are indicated.
The long self-report (CAARS-S:L) and observer (CAARS-O:L) forms provide scores for all subscales, the ADHD Index and Inconsistency Index. The long versions provide the most detailed information upon which to base treatment plans
The short self-report (CAARS-S:S) and observer (CAARS-O:S) forms examine and highlight key dimensions, making them ideal when time with a respondent is limited. The short versions are also often used during treatment to track progress over time. They include abbreviated versions of the factor-derived subscales that are in the long versions. The ADHD Index and the Inconsistency Index are included as well.
The screening versions of the self-report (CAARS-S:SV) and observer (CAARS-O:SV) forms focus on DSM-IV criteria for quick ADHD identification. They include the DSM-IV ADHD subscales and the ADHD Index to screen for the possibility of ADHD
The CAARS has good factorial, discriminant, and construct validity.
Normative data for the self-report forms consist of 1,026 nonclinical adults, while the normative data for the observer forms consist of ratings by spouses, family members, or friends of 943 nonclinical adults. Separate norms are available by gender and age-group intervals (18-29, 30-39, 40-49, and 50+ years).
