What is MEGA♪?
MEGA♪ is a developmentally sensitive, evidence–based, gender-specific risk assessment tool for assessing the level of risk for coarse sexual improprieties and/or sexually abusive behaviors of male and female youth ages 4-19.
Strengths of the MEGA♪:
• Tested on national and international samples of over 2200 youth.
• Applicable to broad range of youth, ages 4-19 years, males and females, including youth with low intellectual functioning.
• Demonstrated prognostic utility and normative data with cut-off scores for gender and age groups.
• Shown to be accurate; does not leave risk assessment to “guess work”.
• Identifies specific protective factors that may mitigate risk for the youth.
• Especially helpful for following youth in long-term placement and identifying the most dangerous, very high risk youth.
• Peer reviewed in professional journals. MEGA♪
