What is the CBCL assessment?

The Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) is a widely used questionnaire to assess behavioral and emotional problems. It is often used as a diagnostic screener, but autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are not included in the CBCL for school-aged children.

How long does it take to complete the Child Behavior Checklist?

The CBCL is a standardized form that parents fill out to describe their children’s behavioral and emotional problems. The version of the CBCL for ages 2 and 3 years (CBCL/2 to 3) can be completed by parents in about 10 minutes. The version for ages 4 to 18 years (CBCL/4 to 18) includes competence items and problems.

What is a clinical range?

Clinical range (also known as Reference Range) is used to diagnose disease. Functional range is used to assess risk for disease before disease develops. The main difference between the Functional and Clinical range is the degree deviation allowed within their normal ranges.

What is the Aseba used for?

The ASEBA is a comprehensive evidence-based assessment system developed through decades of research and practical experience. The ASEBA assesses competencies, strengths, adaptive functioning, and behavioral, emotional, and social problems from age 1½ to over 90 years.

What does out of the normal range mean?

The normal range for a given test is based on the results that are seen in 95% of the healthy population. Sometimes patients whose test results are outside of the normal range may be healthy, and some patients whose test results are within the normal range may have a health problem.

How is the Aseba scored?

You can score forms individually using paper hand-scored profiles. Total scores, T-scores, and/or percentiles from each completed paper profile must be manually transferred into the software application of your choice for eventual analyses. Hand-scoring is available only for current ASEBA forms, excluding the DOF.

What does out of range test results mean?

Truth: A test result outside the reference range may or may not indicate a problem, but it signals your healthcare provider to further investigate your condition. You can have a value outside the range and have nothing wrong—but your provider should try to determine the cause.
