What is the Developmental Behaviour Checklist (DBC)?
The DBC is a suite of instruments for the assessment of behavioural and emotional problems of children, adolescents and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
The Developmental Behaviour Checklist, (DBC), (Einfeld & Tonge, 1992, 1995; 2002) is a questionnaire which is completed by parents or other primary carers or teachers, reporting problems over a six month period. Each behavioural description is scored on a 0, 1, 2 rating where 0 = ‘not true as far as you know', 1 = ‘somewhat or sometimes true', and 2 = ‘very true or often true'.

Access DBC materials
Western Psychological Services (WPS) is now the publisher of the Developmental Behaviour Checklist (DBC) and all related materials. Until the WPS edition is available we will continue to provide you with prepublication DBC materials. Once the publisher has finalised and produced the WPS version of the DBC, we will cease authorizing prepublication uses, and refer all DBC enquiries to their offices. Information and order forms will be available on the WPS website in due course. We thank you for your support of the DBC.
The Developmental Behaviour Checklist and associated materials may be purchased for use by professionals who are trained in the administration and interpretation of psychological tests.
