Despite inhibition has been measured in the laboratory, in the school and at home, there are no Spanish instruments to assess behavioral inhibition features in preschool-age children. The present work is based on the creation of the Preschool Behavioral Inhibition Scale- Teacher's form (PBIS-T), a brief tool of easy application created to assess behavioral inhibition in children aged 3 to 6. The 14 items of PBIS-T were completed by teachers of 697 preschool-age children. Results indicate a good internal consistency reliability (α=0,87) and the correlations of PBIS-T with other measures indicate a good convergent and discriminant validity. Copyright © 2003 Psicothema.
