Supplemental Product Resources

The PBRS is a standardized, norm-referenced parent and teacher rating scale that assists you in identifying comorbid disorders as well as in differentiating disorders that have symptoms and behavioral characteristics that are similar to those of early onset bipolar disorder.

Parent and teacher responses provide setting-specific information

  • Multi-informant approach allows you to evaluate a child’s or an adolescent’s symptoms and behavioral characteristics both at home and at school, helping you determine if a child displays a higher rate of mood instability and aggression in one environment.
  • Items address elements that are unique to early onset bipolar disorder, including mood swings, chronic irritability, grandiosity, explosive outbursts, and emotional meltdowns, and aids in identifying symptoms that can help you make a differential diagnosis.
  • Used in educational settings, the PBRS provides educators with a more complete picture of the child’s symptom complex so that they can work with parents and other professionals to better determine the importance of these symptoms and to structure activities in the classroom.
  • Normative sample was composed of 541 parents and 610 teachers of children ages 3-18 years and was well-matched to the U.S. population for age and gender. Data were also collected on a combined clinical sample of 224 parents and 194 teachers of children who had been diagnosed with one or more of the following: bipolar disorder, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder.
