Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The British Ability Scales (BAS), the third edition of which is presented here (the first validated in Italy), are the result of a research project that began at the University of Manchester in the 1960s and which evolved over time, leading to the publication not only of the BAS in the UK, but also of the Differential Ability Scales (DAS) in the US. The BAS3 (ed. or. 2011; ad. it. 2021) are particularly useful in cases in which cognitive functioning is observed characterized by significant developmental disharmonies between different abilities, as often happens in children and young people who present difficulties or learning (DSA). Even in the presence of giftedness or intellectual disability, the BAS3 offer evaluation elements that characterize the individual child, beyond global functioning indices, which risk masking critical issues or resources. In all these cases, the application of the BAS3 makes it possible to obtain reliable indications on the processes that constitute the child's strengths and weaknesses, offering the clinician useful information to support diagnosis and intervention, especially in the educational field.
