Exclusive author commentary
Amador–Campos JA et al. – This adaptation of the two short forms of the Conners’ Adult ADHD Rating Scales–short version presents adequate evidence of validity and reliability, and it can therefore be used for diagnostic purposes and cross–cultural comparisons.
Juan Antonio Amador-Campos (07/19/2012) comments:
The Catalan adaptation of the the Conners Adult ADHD Rating Scales, Short Self-Report and Observer Forms has adequate validity and reliability. The results confirm the original scale structure, which means that this adaptation is adequate for use in the process of diagnosing ADHD and for monitoring the efficacy of treatment. This is important because these scales are used internationally and it is necessary to have instruments whose factor structure is comparable cross-culturally so as to facilitate research and enable results to be compared.
