The Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Evaluation Scale (A-ADDES) enables private and clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals to evaluate and diagnose Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in adults from input provided by a self-report, a supervisor or co-worker in the workplace, and a significant other in the home environment.

 

The A-ADDES was developed from research in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder; current literature in psychology and neurology; and current practices in identification and diagnosis. The subscales, Inattentive and Hyperactive-Impulsive, are based on the current characteristics of ADHD. The results provided by the scale are commensurate with criteria used by psychiatric professionals to identify Attention-deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in adults. The scale is available in three versions: Self-Report, a reporting form for the patient; Home, a reporting form for spouse, roommate, or friend; and Work, a reporting form for supervisors or co-workers. Internal consistency, test-retest, and inter-rater reliability; item and factor analysis; and content, diagnostic, and construct validity are documented and reported for the scale.

 

The Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Intervention Manual (A-ADDIM) was designed to be used by the mental health professional and the client/patient to develop a program of behavioral interventions based on goals and objectives identified from the A-ADDES. The client/patient has over 400 intervention strategies to choose from to facilitate his/her successful completion of the goals and objectives identified.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Characteristics and Components of the A-ADDES
  • The A-ADDES is based on the APA definition of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (DSM-IV™) and the criteria most widely accepted by mental health professionals.

  • The A-ADDES was standardized on a combined total of 6,074 ratings for the three versions of the scale.

  • The standardization population included adults from 46 states and represented all geographic regions of the United States.

  • Factor analysis confirmed the two A-ADDES subscales.

  • The A-ADDES provides separate norms for male and female adults 18 to 65+ years of age.

  • The Self-Report Version of the scale includes 58 items and is completed by the patient.

  • The Home Version includes 46 items representing behavior exhibited in and around the home environment and is completed by a spouse, roommate, or friend.

  • The Work Version includes 54 items representing behavior exhibited in and around the work environment and is completed by a supervisor or co-worker.

  • The Self-Report, Home, or Work Version of the scale can each be completed in approximately 20 minutes.

  • The A-ADDES/DSM-IV™ Form provides a comparison of the behavioral characteristics from the A-ADDES to the Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity criteria from the DSM-IV™.

  • The Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Intervention Manual (183 pages, © 1998) contains over 400 interventions for the items on the Self-Report, Home, and Work Versions of the scale.
