The Barkley Deficits in Executive Functioning Scale (BDEFS)is an empirically based tool for evaluating dimensions of adult executive functioning in daily life. Evidence indicates that the BDEFS is far more predictive of impairments in major life activities than more time-consuming and costly traditional EF tests. BDEFS offers an ecologically valid snapshot of the capacities involved in time management; organization and problem solving; self-restraint; self-motivation; and self-regulation of emotions. Purchasers get a limited license to photocopy the forms and score sheets without the expense of reordering materials from the publisher.
