Key Features

  • Items are organised into 10 different element scores that represent 10 distinct clinical problem domains.
  • Element raw scores are summed to determine the PAS Total score, which assesses both the potential for emotional and/or behavioural problems of clinical significance and the need for follow-up evaluation.
