The BBAS was developed by William B. Carey MD and Sean C. McDevitt, PhD and standardized on 415 children aged 4-14. Norms indicate how a specific child is functioning compared with others in the same age group. The scale has good internal and retest reliability and there is evidence of discriminant validity in clinical vs. nonclinical subsamples. Dr. Carey presented a paper on BBAS at the recent 2002 Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics meetings in Seattle, Washington.
BBAS should provide clinicians an efficient method for organizing the behavioral characteristics of children in this age group, focusing on strengths as well as problem areas and identifying behaviors highly relevant to emotional and behavioral functioning.
