The Conners Rating Scale - Third Edition (Conners 3) offers a thorough assessment of ADHD in children and adolescents from 6-18 years of age. The Conners 3 also addresses comorbid disorders such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder.
Ratings can be obtained from parents and teachers, and a self-report form is available. All forms are available in full-length and short-length versions.
The Conners 3 Long Forms (for Parents, Teachers and Self) have been updated to provide a new scoring option for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition™ (DSM-5™) Symptom Scales.
The Conners 3 DSM-5 Update Supplement outlines the revisions to symptom criteria for ADHD, Conduct Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder made in the DSM-5. DSM Symptom Scales on the Full Scale QuikScore Forms are updated with DSM-5 criteria, and the DSM-5 scoring option incorporates three main updates.
The Conners 3 Manual (which was not updated), outlines much of what is required for administration, scoring and interpretation, but the Supplement will assist examiners in understanding the DSM-5 changes implemented to the Full Scale QuickScore Forms, and their effects.
