Attachment During Stress Scale (ADS Scale)
A mental health screening instrument, the scale provides indicators of mother-infant attachment. It can also assess the quality of father-infant or caretaker-infant interaction. The scale screens for conditions as diverse as lack of infant responsiveness in autism or parental avoidance in child neglect, and can guide treatment. As a public service, the ADS scale is free for downloading and printing. English, Spanish and French versions are given. The scale is fully self-contained, self-guiding, and rapid to use.
