Editorial Reviews


"Barkley is one of the leading scientists in ADHD. With this rating scale, he continues to advance our scientific understanding of the assessment of this disorder."--Lenard Adler, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Director, Adult ADHD Program, New York University School of Medicine

"The BAARS-IV is a valuable addition to the assessment process for ADHD in adults. Barkley has created a valid and reliable tool that will greatly aid in the diagnostic and differential diagnostic process for ADHD. I will definitely include this current, comprehensive scale in my adult assessments, and I encourage other clinicians to do the same."--Sam Goldstein, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Attention Disorders

"Based on DSM-IV criteria, and normed on a large, representative sample of the adult population, the BAARS-IV will increase the reliability and validity of diagnoses of ADHD in adults. In addition to the self-reports of current and childhood symptoms, the BAARS-IV includes other-report forms and a quick screening tool. The development and validation of this scale and its presentation in the manual reflect Barkley’s usual impeccable work and his extensive clinical and research experience with ADHD."--Mary V. Solanto, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Director, ADHD Center, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

"Reliable, empirically based, and convenient to use for clinicians. Allow[s] a doctor to quantify behaviors that can't be readily observed in the clinic."--ADDitude Magazine
