Sluggish cognitive tempo (SCT) is increasingly recognized as a valid attention disorder distinct from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. The culmination of more than 10 years of research and development, the Barkley Sluggish Cognitive Tempo Scale–Children and Adolescents (BSCTS-CA) is the first empirically based, norm-referenced tool designed to assess SCT symptoms (for example, chronic daydreaming, inability to focus, and lethargy) in the daily life activities of 6- to 17-year-olds. The scale typically takes a parent less than 5 minutes to complete. Detailed instructions for scoring and interpretation are provided. Also included is a clinical interview form based on the rating scale, for use in unusual circumstances where a parent is unable to fill out a rating scale.

What does it do?: Assesses concentration deficits in the daily life activities of children and adolescents.
Age Range: 6–17.
Administration Time: Less than 5 minutes.
Format: Parent-report rating scale.
Cost of Additional Forms: No cost--purchasers get permission to reproduce the forms and score sheets for repeated use.

Includes Permission to Photocopy
Enhancing the convenience and value of the BSCTS-CA, the limited photocopy license allows purchasers to reproduce the forms and score sheets and yields considerable cost savings over other available scales. The large format and sturdy wire binding facilitate photocopying.

Age Range: 6–17
