Disruptive Behavior Disorders

Child and Adolescent Disruptive Behavior Inventory-Parent & Teacher Version (CADBI)

(Burns, Taylor, & Rusby, 2001a; 2001b).

The CADBI is a 25-item parent- or teacher-report measure assessing disruptive behaviors in youths (age range not specified). Although no appropriate age range the authors have set guidelines, the CADBI has been used in validation studies with youth ages 3 to 18 (e.g., Burns, Boe, Walsh, Sommers-Flanagan, & Teegarden, 2001). The CADBI can be used as a screening and diagnostic tool (Taylor, Burns, Rusby, & Foster, 2006). The CADBI consists of two subscales assessing oppositional behavior towards peers and adults, and hyperactivity/impulsivity (Burns et al., 2001a; 2001b). Sample items include: “Annoys peers on purpose,” “Loses temper or gets angry with adults when doesn’t get own way” and “Sasses adults.” Each item is rated on an 8-point Likert scale from one (“Never in the past month”) to eight (“10 or more times per day”). This measure can be administered in approximately five minutes. The CADBI demonstrates excellent internal consistency (α = .91-.97), fair inter-rater reliability (r = .64-.69), and good test-retest reliability at 3-month interval; (r = .86-.94). It also demonstrates predictive validity with diagnoses of ADHD made by direct observations (
