Twenty-five adolescents with mild to severe levels of mental retardation were compared with 25 normal intelligence adolescents on self-report and informant versions of childhood depression measures. Results indicated that the Children's Depression Inventory, Bellevue Index of Depression, and Reynolds Child Depression Scale may be effective instruments for assessing depression in mentally retarded adolescents.
