About This Product
BY C. KEITH CONNERS, PHD
The new Conners EC identifies behavioral, social, and emotional problems in young children. It lets you know whether youngsters are meeting major developmental milestones—information that’s useful in determining eligibility for early intervention or special education services. The test covers the following scales and milestones:
- Oppositional/Aggressive Behaviors
- Social Functioning/Atypical Behaviors
- Anxiety, Mood, and Affect
- Physical Symptoms
- Adaptive Skills
- Motor Skills
The Conners EC includes both a Parent Form (191 items) and a Teacher/Caregiver Form (187 items). Ratings are made in a Response Booklet and then scored using the Conners EC software.
Embedded within each form are three item subsets: Behavior, Developmental Milestones, and Global Index (composed of the 10 highest loading items from the original Conners Parent and Teacher Rating Scales). When you need no more than a quick estimate of psychopathology or a convenient way to monitor treatment, you can obtain scores for one or more of these indexes only.
When you score the full test, you can generate several reports. Assessment Reports note elevated scales, milestones met, and status relative to peers, while also providing Feedback Handouts that explain test results to parents. Progress Reports compare results from two to four administrations for the same individual. And Comparative Reports examine results from different raters (e.g., mother, father, teacher) to pinpoint similarities and differences.
