What can the K-CAT® measure?
The modules below are available for immediate use in English and Spanish. Each have been validated and are available via our browser-based clinical portal or API integration. For additional information on the underlying science behind the modules, please read our academic press.
The K-CAT® offers paired, or linked, interviews for both the child and parent. A guardian, teacher, caregiver, or clinician can complete the parent interview. Paired interviews result in diagnostic classifications (i.e. probability of diagnosis) based on our modeling of K-SADS clinician diagnoses in our original validation study and is the recommended use of the K-CAT®. Because the diagnostic classifications are based on both the self-rating and parent’s rating of the child, they require that all ‘Paired’ tests are included (Child/Suicide Scale is optional) and are not available for individual Child or Parent interviews.
