Product Details

The Conners EC provides you with contemporary normative data that reflects a diverse population demographic. The large normative sample is representative of the general U.S. population in terms of ethnicity/race, gender and age (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000).

The normative sample is also diverse in terms of socio-economic status and geographic region. The data collected during the normative study allowed for a thorough evaluation of the psychometric properties of all versions of the assessment tools.

The normative data included 800 parent and 800 teacher / childcare provider raters. Separate norms are provided for males and females at 6-month intervals. Combined gender norms are also available.


Conners Early Childhood, an assessment that addresses child behaviour for ages 2 years to 6 years. The Conners EC is the result of five years of intensive product research and development. Child psychologists, clinicians, paediatricians and child psychiatrists can rely on the Conners EC to help them identify when early intervention is required.
