Evidence Snapshot

Summary
In testing, there was some evidence for internal consistency of subscales and for the hypothesized subscale structure. The selfreport WHODAS-Child was a reasonable predictor of severity of symptoms and functional impairment, suggesting that the selfreport WHODAS-Child may have utility in identifying children with more severe and impairing mental health problems in this population.
