Devereux Behavior Rating Scale | School FormDBRS
The Devereux Behavior Rating Scale (DBRS™) School Form is used to detect severe emotional disturbances in students. It is based on federal criteria and can be used by educators, psychologists, guidance counselors, and other assessment professionals.
- Age range:
- 5:0 - 18:0
- Qualification level:
- Completion time:
- 5 minutes
- Separate by age and sex for both parent and teacher raters
This 40-item scale is especially effective used in conjunction with other findings to monitor and evaluate progress during educational interventions, or to determine whether a seriously emotionally disturbed child or adolescent should be placed in a special education program.
Two forms feature separate sets of items appropriate for children (5–12 years) and adolescents (13–18 years).
