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 PARiConnect Digital Library also allows users to view e-Manuals via a tablet or an iPad. Please note that devices running on Apple’s recently released iOS15 will not display e-Manuals correctly.

To view any bookmarks you have created, click on the Bookmarks tab on the left side of the screen.
How many times can I download an e-Manual?

Is it possible to print out the e-Manual if I want a hard copy?
