Assessment of Depression in Mentally Retarded Adults: Reliability and Validity of the Children's Depression Inventory (CDI).
Meins, Wolfgang
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v14 n4 p299-312 Jul-Aug 1993
The applicability of the Children's Depression Inventory (CDI) (in the informant-rating version) to mentally retarded adults was evaluated with 798 individuals. Evaluation of internal consistency, interrater reliability, factor analysis, and effects of age, sex, and degree of mental retardation indicated that the CDI is suitable as a diagnostic and screening instrument for this population.
