Reiss Screen for Maladaptive Behavior
This test screens for mental health problems (dual diagnosis)
in persons with mental retardation using information supplied by
caretakers, teachers, work, supervisors, or parents. Raters indicate
the extent to which each of 36 carefully defined symptoms of
psychiatric disorder are no problem, a problem, or a major problem.
Screens for psychiatric disorder in three different ways ( severity
of challenging behavior, diagnosis, and rare but significant symptoms
such as suicidal behavior). A positive result indicates that the
person should be referred for professional evaluation. The total
score, a measure of severity of disorder, is well suited to assess
progress over tme. The national norms are broken down for mild
versus severe intellectual disabilities, so that the same test form
can be used with both groups. Peer reviewed publications plus
NIH-NIMH reports. Popular because it is quick and accurate.
