The Conners' Adult ADHD Diagnostic Interview for DSM-IV (CAADID) is a structured interview that assists in the process of diagnosing adult ADHD, in adults 18 years and over. This assessment is appropriate for those 18 and older.
The interview is divided into Part I and Part II, which are administered separately.
Part II, the Diagnostic Criteria Interview, is presented in interview format. The clinician uses the information obtained in Part I to assess against DSM-IV criteria for ADHD.
The CAADID Diagnostic Criteria Interview Forms are used during the second clinical interview session, when Part II of the CAADID is being administered. Part II is designed to determine if the patient meets Criteria A-D for DSM-IV ADHD.
Part II has three sections, looking at Criterion A, B and C. These are followed by a section that addresses Criterion D.
The Form includes a summary sheet and scoring algorithm that enables summarising and scoring of results.
