The SPAI–C evaluates the somatic, cognitive and behavioral aspects of social phobia in children between the ages of 8 and 14 so that you can determine the best course of action. In school environments, the SPAI–C detects the existence of social fears that may be related to poor school performance, oppositional behavior, or truancy. The SPAI–C is a self-report form with 26 items and a third-grade reading level.
