The Conners CBRS is a comprehensive, multi-informant tool that identifies and qualifies students for inclusion in special education.  In addition to aiding in the diagnostic process, it assists in the development of intervention/treatment plans, and evaluates and monitors response to treatment.

The CBRS was created in response to the growing demand for a comprehensive assessment that identifies a multitude of disorders and concerns, in children and adolescents, and provides information and guidance on intervention planning and monitoring. The Conners CBRS identifies each student’s specific needs, and areas that require attention and focus.

The Conners CBRS includes DSM-IV-TR symptom scales that assess the following disorders:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder  
  • Separation Anxiety Disorder
  • Social Phobia    
  • Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder
  • Major Depressive Episode   
  • Manic Episode
  • Autistic Disorder    
  • Asperger’s Disorder
  • ADHD     
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder
  • Conduct Disorder

This comprehensive assessment measures a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and academic problems.  Along with the empirical scales, the Conners CBRS is supplemented by a Rational Scale that measures the student’s potential for violent behavior. The Conners CBRS includes a comprehensive list of questions designed to highlight specific clinical issues that may warrant further investigation.

The Conners CBRS includes clinical indicators for a number of concerns including:

  • Bullying Perpretation 
  • Bullying Victimization
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

The Conners CBRS includes impairment questions that can help identify functional impairment in home, social and school settings, resulting from reported problems.  This is a significant part of the overall assessment process, and essential for a proper DSM-IV-TR diagnosis.

Results of the DSM-IV-TR symptom counts can contribute to consideration of whether a particular DSM-IV-TR diagnosis might be appropriate. The DSM-IV-TR T-scores allow for comparison of a child’s level of symptoms to their peers. This comparison provides a developmental perspective, by enabling the administrator to see whether the youth shows more symptoms of a particular disorder than is typical for their gender and age group.

The Conners CBRS DSM-IV-TR Scales look at:

  • Asperger’s Disorder  
  • Manic Episode  
  • Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder
  • Social Phobia  
  • Major Depressive Episode 
  • Other Disorders

These scales provide critical symptomatic criteria, essential to a clear link from symptom to diagnosis, and the identification of children who have a multitude of disorders. 

The Conners CBRS forms are clear, straightforward, and easy to follow.  Reading levels for the Full forms are Parent–4.1, Teacher–4.3 and Self-Report–3.2.

Clinical Index (Conners CI)
The Conners CBRS also includes a Clinical Index for Parent, Teacher and Self-Reports. The Clinical Index contains 25 items, and is used to determine whether a student is likely to have a clinical diagnosis. The Index is helpful when monitoring treatment over time, and when the informant is required to fill out the form multiple times.  The Index is included in the Conners CBRS, and can also be purchased separately.

Representative Sample
The Conners CBRS reflects the general U.S, population in terms of gender, race, ethnicity and parent education level (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000).
