ATTENTION-DEFICIT/HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER

EARLY CHILDHOOD
ATTENTION DEFICIT
DISORDERS EVALUATION SCALE
(ECADDES)

Item #02210The Early Childhood Attention Deficit Disorder Evaluation Scale (ECADDES) enables educators, school and private psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, and other medical personnel to evaluate Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in females ages 24 through 83 months and males ages 24 through 78 months from input provided by primary observers of the child’s behavior.

The ECADDES was developed from research in behavior disorders, learning disabilities, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder; current literature in psychology, neurology, and education; 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 educational, psychiatric, and pediatric professionals to identify Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in children. The scale is available in two versions: School Version, a reporting form for educators, and Home Version, a reporting form for parents/guardians. Internal consistency, test-retest, and inter-rater reliability; item and factor analysis; and content, diagnostic, criterion-related, and construct validity are documented and reported for the scale.

Characteristics and Components of the ECADDES
  • The ECADDES is based on the APA definition of Attention-
    Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder from the DSM-IV™ and the criteria most widely accepted by professionals.

  • The ECADDES School Version was standardized on a total of 2,887 children, including children identified with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.

  • The standardization population included children from 30 states and represented all geographic regions of the United States.

  • Factor analysis confirmed the two ECADDES subscales.

  • The ECADDES provides separate norms for females 24 through 83 months and males 24 through 78 months of age.

  • The School Version can be completed in approximately 15 minutes and includes 56 items easily observed and documented by educational personnel.

  • The Home Version can be completed by a parent/guardian in approximately 15 minutes and includes 50 items representing behaviors exhibited in and around the home environment.
  • The ECADDES/DSM-IV™ Form provides a comparison of the behavioral characteristics from the ECADDES to the Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity criteria from the DSM-IV™.

  • The Early Childhood Attention Deficit Disorder Intervention Manual includes IEP goals, objectives, and interventions for all 56 items on the School Version of the scale.

  • The Parent’s Guide to Early Childhood Attention Deficit Disorder provides parents with specific, practical strategies to use in helping their child be more successful in the home environment.

  • The ECADDES Quick Score computer program converts raw scores to standard scores and percentiles which makes scoring efficient and convenient.

  • Spanish language Home Version Rating Forms are available.
