Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the commonly used assessments to measure functioning in children and adolescents. A description of each assessment is provided along with the psychometric properties, estimated time to administer, and the cost. Each measure is evaluated for its components, reliability, validity, and utility, including its strengths and weaknesses. Instruments reviewed include the Child and Adolescent Functioning Assessment Scale (CAFAS) and the Columbia Impairment Scale (CIS).
