The Conners' Adult ADHD Diagnostic Interview for DSM-IV (CAADID) is a structured interview that aids the process of diagnosing adult ADHD. The CAADID provides clinicians and researchers with the categorical diagnosis they require when assessing ADHD. The CAADID is most effective when used with other types of ADHD measures, such as the Conners CPT II and the CAARS; their joint use is illustrated by case studies in the technical manual.
The interview is divided into Part I and II, administered separately, with each part requiring about 1.5 hours to complete. Part I is the Patient History Form, which can be administered as either a clinical interview or as a self-report questionnaire, contains questions about the demographic history of the client's attention problems, and the associated risk factors. It also contains comorbidity screening questions.
Part II, the Diagnostic Criteria Interview Forms, is presented in interview format and the clinician uses the information obtained from Part I to assess the client against the DSM-IV criteria for ADHD. Information is also gathered on age of onset, pervasiveness, and level of impairment for any ADHD symptoms that are indicated.
