The Conners 3rd Edition (Conners 3) is the result of five years of extensive product development and research. School psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, clinics, child protection agencies can count on the Conners 3 to be a reliable and dependable tool capable of supporting them in the diagnostic and identification process.
Based on the solid findings and key elements of its predecessor, the Conners' Rating Scales-Revised (CRS-R), the Conners 3 offers a more thorough assessment of ADHD. The Conners 3 now addresses comorbid disorders such as oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder. Each parent, teacher, and self-report form is available in full length and short versions.
The Conners 3 offers you:
- A large representative normative sample based on the 2000 U.S. census data
- A refined focus on ADHD in school-age children with a new age range (6-18 for parent and teacher forms, and 8-18 for self-report forms)
- Strengthened Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: Fourth Edition (DSM-IV-TR) connections
- Clear applications in clinical settings that help identify children with behavioral difficulties
- Step-by-step guidance on how to use the tool in behavioral treatment and progress monitoring
As with its predecessor, the Conners 3 is a multi-informant assessment. Gathering information from parents, teachers and youth provides a view of the child's disorder and concerns from multiple perspectives.
How To Use The Assessment
The Conners 3 forms include multiple components that are available in paper-and-pencil or computerised format. The rating scales are available for parent (Conners 3-P), teacher (Conners 3-T) and self-report (Conners 3-SR). As well, the Connors 3 is available in short version.
