Self-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Adolescent

Participants:

These questions can be used for adolescents 12-17 years old.

Specific Instructions:

Before implementing this protocol, it is important to first determine the participant’s primary guardian, ensure that the child has contact with the mother when assessing the mother’s communication, and that the child has contact with the father when assessing the father’s communication. Although the original protocol was implemented with the child’s mother, the Working Group agrees that this protocol can be administered to the primary guardian who lives with the child. The protocol text should be adjusted accordingly to denote the relationship of the primary guardian.

Question #4 requires recoding. Whereas Questions #1-3 & #5-6 are more positively oriented – that is, they are worded such that the more desirable response is “Completely True” – Question #4 is more negatively oriented. Hence, the more desirable response to this question is “Completely Not True.” Therefore, in order to arrive at a valid score, the user must recode the values assigned to each response option for Question #4. The corresponding values assigned to the response options for Question #4 should be opposite the corresponding values for the responses for the other questions in this protocol.

Selection Rationale

These items have predictive validity. They are low burden and widely available.
