Product Details

Obtain a consistent measure of ADD across the life span with the Brown Attention-Deficit Disorder Scales® for Children and Adolescents and the Brown Attention-Deficit Disorder Scales for Adolescents and Adults. Based on Thomas Brown's cutting-edge model of cognitive impairment in ADD, the Brown ADD Scales explore the executive cognitive functioning aspects of cognition associated with AD/HD (ADD).

Extended Age Range

With the new Brown ADD Scales for Children that include a primary/preschool scale (ages 3–7) and a school-age scale (ages 8–12), in addition to the adolescent and adult scales already available, the Brown ADD Scales allow you to comprehensively assess ADD in individuals of all ages.

Clusters of Executive Functions

The Brown ADD Scales go beyond measures that address only hyperactivity to assess for less apparent impairments of executive functioning. The manuals explain the new understanding of ADD as complex impairments of executive functions that impact academic, social, emotional and behavioral functioning.

As with the adolescent and adult version, the children's edition features five clusters frequently associated with ADD—plus a sixth one, Monitoring and Self-Regulating Action, that encom-passes problems in appropriately controlling behavior:

  • Organizing, Prioritizing and Activating to Work
  • Focusing, Sustaining and Shifting Attention to Tasks
  • Regulating Alertness, Sustaining Effort and Processing Speed
  • Managing Frustration and Modulating Emotions
  • Utilizing Working Memory and Accessing Recall
  • Monitoring and Self-Regulating Action

User-Friendly

You can administer any of these 40 to 50-item efficient screening instruments in just 10 to 20 minutes. Easy to understand parent and teacher questionnaires are available for the children's version, and self-report forms are provided for ages 8 through adults to obtain information that may be overlooked by observers.

Variety of Uses

Use the Brown ADD Scales for screening, as part of a comprehensive diagnosis, and for monitoring of treatment responses in a wide range of educational, clinical, and managed care settings.

Relationship with Intelligence and Memory

The manual for the adolescent and adult scales helps to integrate performance with the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale®—Third Edition (WAIS®–III), while the children's manual relates performance to scores from the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children®—Third Edition (WISC–III®) and select subtests of the Children's Memory Scale™. The manuals provide instructions for interpretation and linking performance on the Brown ADD Scaleswith IQ and other assessment data.

Comprehensive Diagnostic Form

The Brown ADD Diagnostic Form allows you to gather and integrate important diagnostic information about an individual, with cluster and total scores arriving at a diagnostic decision. The Diagnostic Form helps you conduct a comprehensive evaluation, with a set of procedures for integrating a clinical history, a comorbidity screener, and a worksheet for integrating data from the Brown ADD Scales with standardized scores from other tests.

Scoring

Flexible Scoring

The convenient READY SCORE® form gives you immediate cluster scores and a total score indicating overall impairment from a broad range of ADD symptoms. T scores give you an indication of how much impairment the examinee is showing on each of the clusters, relative to a normative population. Results indicate whether the individual appears to have ADD and would benefit from a full evaluation for the disorder.

Simplify scoring and reporting with the efficient Brown ADD Scales Scoring Assistant® which allows you to quickly score and analyze results from all the Brown ADD Scales. The software accepts record form inputs; maintains multiple record forms for an examinee; exports record form data; and generates a graphical and narrative report. This timesaving program allows you to spend less time on scoring so you can focus on developing appropriate interventions and monitoring the effectiveness of treatments for your child, adolescent and adult clients.
