The TABS Assessment Tool is a norm-referenced tool designed to identify temperament and self-regulation problems that can indicate that a child is developing atypically or is at risk for atypical development. This 55-item checklist covers areas such as temperament, attention, attachment, social behavior, play, vocal and oral behavior, sense and movement, self-stimulation and self-injury, and neurobehavioral state. The parent-completed checklist takes approximately 15 minutes. The results give a detailed evaluation of atypical behavior in four categories-detached, hypersensitive-active, underreactive, and dysregulated. The TABS Assessment Tool is sold as a package of 30 4-page assessment forms. This tool is part of the TABS, a norm-referenced screening and assessment tool designed to identify temperament and self-regulation problems that may indicate a child's risk for developmental delay. For use with children ages 11 to 71 months, TABS can be used for screening, research, determining eligibility for special services, planning programs, and monitoring child progress and program effectiveness.
