Sluggish cognitive tempo (SCT) is increasingly recognized as a valid attention disorder distinct from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. The culmination of more than 10 years of research and development, the Barkley Sluggish Cognitive Tempo Scale–Children and Adolescents (BSCTS-CA) is the first empirically based, norm-referenced tool designed to assess SCT symptoms (for example, chronic daydreaming, inability to focus, and lethargy) in the daily life activities of 6- to 17-year-olds. The scale typically takes a parent less than 5 minutes to complete. Detailed instructions for scoring and interpretation are provided. Also included is a clinical interview form based on the rating scale, for use in unusual circumstances where a parent is unable to fill out a rating scale.

What does it do?: Assesses concentration deficits in the daily life activities of children and adolescents.
Age Range: 6–17.
Administration Time: Less than 5 minutes.
Format: Parent-report rating scale.
Cost of Additional Forms: No cost—purchasers get permission to reproduce the forms and score sheets for repeated use.
