The BDEFS-CA offers a snapshot of the capacities involved in time management; organization and problem solving; self-restraint; self-motivation, and self-regulation of emotions. Evidence has shown that the BDEFS-CA is far more predictive of impairments in daily life activities that more time-consuming and costly, traditional Executive Functioning tests.
In addition to the two Parent Forms (long and short), there is also a short Clinical Interview Form, for use in unusual circumstances, where a parent is unable to complete a Rating Scale. Special features include an ADHD Risk Index, in the long form.
