This mobile-friendly Vanderbilt ADHD Rating Scale follows closely the criteria set forth in DSM-IV and has been customized to make smartphone observations in the office and treatment environments.
Making the correct diagnosis in pediatric attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is especially important today. The Vanderbilt Rating Scales follow closely the criteria set forth in DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual – IV) and have been customized to observations made in the home and classroom environments.
When the forms are returned to the mental health professional, the scoring allows the clinician not only to make a diagnosis of ADHD, if present, but also to categorize the problem into one of its various subtypes: inattentive, hyperactive/impulsive, or combined. The Vanderbilt Scales also look for symptoms of frequent comorbidities, such as oppositional defiance, conduct disorder, anxiety, and depression. The Vanderbilt scales were developed by Mark L. Wolraich, MD and colleagues. Dr. Wolraich is currently the Shaun Walters Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center in Oklahoma City.
These scales are easily used online and via mobile devices for assessment at the point of care. Score, share and record results.
