The Child and Adolescent Intellectual Disability Screening Questionnaire
The CAIDS-Q was developed to provide a quick, easy and accurate way of identifying children/young people who are likely to have an intellectual disability. The CAIDS-Q is valid and reliable and can be completed quickly with minimum demands on the individual, carer or professional completing it.
The CAIDS-Q can discriminate with high levels of accuracy between those who have an intellectual disability and those who do not (identifying those who have an intellectual disability with 97% accuracy) and it does not require intensive and time-consuming assessment. It can be used by professionals, families and carers in a range of settings, including health and criminal justice services. It can be completed directly with the individual or by someone who knows him or her well. To order your copy, please go to our shop
