The Reynolds Child Depression Scale-2nd Edition (RCDS-2) and Reynolds Child Depression Scale-2nd Edition: Short Form (RCDS-2:SF) are designed to screen for depression in children aged 7-13 years.
Children are asked to answer questions about how they have been feeling during the past 2 weeks, with all items worded in the present tense to elicit current symptoms status. All items are presented in a 4- or 5-point rating scale format, making them easy for children to answer.
The RCDS-2:SF includes 11 of the 30 RCDS-2 items but features many of the critical items from the full version. The short form can be administered in just 2 to 3 minutes and can help you determine whether your client should be administered the full RCDS-2.
The RCDS-2 and RCDS-2:SF can be administered and scored online, via PARiConnect. PARiConnect assesses your clients when and where you need-you can administer assessments online and generate score and Interpretive Reports instantly (assessment dependant).
The Online RCDS-2 Score Reports provide scores and profiles based on response data from an i-Admin.
