Child Behavior


Child Social-Emotional-Behavioral Assessments


Understanding your child is paramount to being able to parent well. Children have individual differences in how they respond to their environment and to others, known as their temperament. Insight into your child’s temperament gives you invaluable information about him/her as a unique individual. Knowing if your child’s emotional functioning, social skills, and behavior are in line with those of same-aged children allows you to know if he/she is developing normally.

The 5 child behavior assessments measure your child’s temperament, emotional functioning, social skills, and type and degree of problem behaviors. Their scores will let you know if these are in a range that could be problematic. The in-depth report helps you interpret your results. 

You’ll receive a link on the completed purchase page and by email.

  • For temperament assessments, you complete the assessment directly on any device and receive your results immediately.
  • For a social skills/child behavior assessment, you receive a online shipping form indicating where the assessment should be mailed to you to complete and return (postage is provided). Once we receive your completed assessments, you’ll receive your report by email.

Respondent

Mothers, Fathers

#Children

Individual child

Ages

3—5 years

Measures

Young child social skills and problem behaviors.

Rationale

Social-emotional development encompasses a wide range of skills and outcomes. While these are distinct, they are also interrelated and often influence one another in a cyclical fashion. Social skills are important because they decrease the likelihood for negative interactions with others.  Problem behaviors are those which interfere with acquiring or performing skills, often in social situations. Behavior problems can negatively impact children’s psychological, cognitive and behavioral outcomes from feelings about the self to relationships to learning and academic performance.

This assessment allows you to know how your child is functioning compared to other same-age children. For social skills these areas are communication, cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, engagement, and self-control. For problem behaviors, they are emotionally reactive, anxious/depressed, withdrawn, somatic complaints, aggressive, bullying, inattention/overactivity, sleep problems, and autism spectrum.

Notes: This is a screener and cannot be used in place of a full diagnostic evaluation. Due to the nature of the forms, this must be completed as paper and pencil. The price includes a prepaid envelope for you to return the forms.
