The Clinician’s Pathway Program is a Diagnostic Assessment Program

The Diagnostic Assessment Program for Juvenile Bipolar Disorder was designed for use in clinical and research settings to screen for bipolar disorder in children from parent and child reports. The program provides preliminary diagnostic and symptom severity measures, as well as scaled scores of other key symptom dimensions (anxiety, sleep/wake disturbance, mania sensory sensitivity and others).

The Child Bipolar Questionnaire

The Child Bipolar Questionnaire (CBQ) is a reliable and sensitive diagnostic indicator for early onset bipolar disorder. It is simple to use and may be self-administered by the child’s primary caretaker or administered by a clinician.
The unique feature of this 65 question screening instrument is that it collects information not only on the symptoms of bipolar disorder, but for many other disorders considered comorbid to bipolar disorder (mania, major depression, separation anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder and attention deficit disorder). Further, it allows that information to be reported in degrees of severity rather than simply “present” or “absent”. The development of the CBQ is important as it provides an efficient screening tool that is both reliable and easy to use.

The Jeannie and Jeffrey Illustrative Interview for Children

The Jeannie and Jeffrey Illustrative Interview for Children is a diagnostic indicator for early onset bipolar disorder. It is a simple to use instrument that can be administered by the child’s primary caretaker or administered by a clinician. The unique feature of this screening interview portrays a child as Jeannie or Jeffrey that is easily identifiable to children and facilitates their describing the nature of their symptoms.
