Description

The Conners 3rd Edition (Conners 3; Conners, 2008), the latest version of the Conners Rating Scales, is a thorough assessment of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and its most commonly associated problems and disorders in school-aged youth. The Conners 3 is a multi-informant assessment with forms for parents, teachers, and youth. Parent and teacher ratings can be obtained about youth aged 6–18 years, and youth aged 8–18 years can complete the self-report.

Symptoms of distinct diagnoses can be assessed with scales that link directly to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR; American Psychiatric Association, 2000) symptomatic criteria for ADHD, conduct disorder (CD), and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)....
