This is the official home for the Ohio Scales for Youth. The Ohio Scales for Youth are three (parent, youth, and agency worker rated), brief measures used to assess the outcome of mental health services for youth who are 5 to 18 years of age. The scales, manuals, training aids, and other materials are available at this site. You are welcome to license and use the scales for a modest fee (or for free depending on the purpose and location; see Licensing). The scales were developed with pragmatic purposes in mind. We hoped that brief, easy to score, reasonably priced, accessible scales would be widely available and used.
The Ohio Scales for Youth were developed with generous support from the Southern Consortium for Children and the Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) at the Ohio Department of Mental Health.
