Learning Disability Results

Thank you for completing the Child and Adolescent Intellectual Disability Screening Questionnaire (CAIDS-Q). The CAIDS-Q was developed to give parents, families and professionals who have concerns that a child/young person may have a learning disability a quick and easy indication of whether they do.

It is based on extensive research, is valid and reliable, can be completed quickly and can discriminate with high levels of accuracy between those who have a learning disability and those who do not.

Please note that, while the CAIDS-Q has high levels of accuracy, it is less accurate under the following circumstances:

  • If the child is aged under 8 or young person is aged between 16 and 18
  • If the child/young person has an existing condition that may impact on the results of the screening questionnaire, such as a physical disability, a learning difficulty or Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • If the child/young person has English as a second language
  • If you had to guess the answers to any of the questions

Please remember that the screening questionnaire is just that: an initial indicator of whether someone might have a learning disability or not. Further professional psychological assessment is always required to confirm this.

We would like to hear your views on the WebApp and screening questionnaire to help us to improve them in future. If you would like to leave your feedback, as part of our evaluation project, please click here

The project has received ethical approval from Department of Psychology Ethics Committee at Northumbria University.
