CHILD SYMPTOM INVENTORY-4 (CSI-4)
Ages 5 to 12 Years
By Kenneth D. Gadow, Ph.D. and Joyce Sprafkin, Ph.D.
|The Child Symptom Inventory-4 (CSI-4) is a behavior rating scale that screens for DSM-IV emotional and behavioral disorders in children between 5 and 12 years old. The CSI-4: Parent Checklist contains 97 items that screen for 15 emotional and behavioral disorders, and the CSI-4: Teacher Checklist contains 77 items that screen for 13 emotional and behavioral disorders. The CSI-4 can be scored to derive Symptom Count scores (diagnostic model) or Symptom Severity scores (normative data model). Scoring is quick and easy with user-friendly score sheets.|
DISORDERS INCLUDED: *AD/HD *Oppositional Defiant Disorder *Conduct Disorder *Generalized Anxiety Disorder *Social Phobia *Separation Anxiety Disorder *Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder *Specific Phobia *Major Depressive Disorder *Dysthymic Disorder *Schizophrenia *Pervasive Developmental Disorder *Asperger's Disorder *Motor Tics *Vocal Tics
RESEARCH: CSI-4 scores demonstrate satisfactory test-retest reliability, show a high degree of correspondence with psychiatric diagnosis (predictive validity), and correlate well with other commonly used dimensional scales (concurrent validity). The norm sample for the Parent Checklist (N=552) and the Teacher Checklist (N=1,300) consisted of children between 5 and 12 years old who attended public elementary schools. T scores and raw scores for males and females are presented separately on Symptom Severity Profile score sheets. Normative data for children referred to a child psychiatry outpatient clinic are also available for the Parent Checklist (N=590) and Teacher Checklist (N=548).
PRODUCT INFORMATION: The 2002 CSI-4 Consolidated Manual (which combines the Screening and Norms Manuals) is a 179-page book that reviews diagnostic criteria and describes research, scoring guidelines, normative data, and clinical applications for Symptom Count scores and Symptom Severity scores. The CSI-4 Deluxe Kit contains the Consolidated Manual, 25 Parent Checklists, 25 Teacher Checklists, 50 Symptom Count score sheets (with scoring instructions, cutoff scores, and rule out diagnoses), and 50 Symptom Severity Profile (T scores) score sheets for both Parent and Teacher Checklists. The Parent and Teacher Checklists are also available in Spanish and are keyed to the English-language version item-by-item.
