A system of multidimensional evaluation of conduct. a scale for parents of children from 6 to 11 years old, colombian version
INTRODUCTION. Behavioral Assessment System for Children (BASC) has demonstrated to be useful in the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
PATIENTS AND METHODS. A randomized sample of 120 children, 6 to 11-year-old, participants from the schools of the city of Medellín,Colombia, was selected. The sample was stratified by sex and two socioeconomic status (SES). Parents were asked to answer the BASC Parent Rating Scale (PRS) 6-11, authorized Spanish version.
RESULTS. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was 0.85 for the clinical scale (9 items). It was 0.75 for the Adaptive Scale (3 items). A scale designed with 4 items to assess ADD (hyperactivity, attention problems, aggression, and conduct problems) showed an alpha coefficient of 0.82. Male children scored significantly higher than female (ANOVA, p< 0.05) in hyperactivity, conduct problems, and atipicality. Children from low SES scored significantly higher than children of high SES on the most of clinical measures (p< 0.05) and lower on the three adaptive measures. Cluster analysis selecting six clusters found a prevalence of 61.6% for normal male children. In the total sample there were a 4% at risk of DDA type II (inattentive) and 14% at risk of DDA type I (combined). Conclussion. BASC PRS (6-11) showed reliability and validity to assessing the behavior in Spanish speaking Colombian children
