Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), 1½–5
Completed from the perspective of the child’s parent or guardian, the questionnaire evaluates a variety of behavioral problems and competencies in young children. Parents respond to 99 Likert-type items by selecting the option that best represents their child’s behavior over the past 6 months (0 = “Not true (as far as you know),” 1 = “Somewhat or sometimes true,” and 2 = “Very true or often true”).
