The Bristol Social Adjustment Guides (BSAG) help to diagnose the nature and extent of behavioral disturbances in children at school. These forms were designed to be completed by teachers, counselors, and school psychologists. To eliminate subjective bias, the Guides focus on observable behavior rather than descriptions of personality traits and motivation.
