PTSS bij Kinderen met een Verstandelijke Beperking

By C.J.M. Nieuwenburg


Aim The present article presents a studie to examine parent–child agreement on a clinical interview to diagnose PTSD. Method Participants were 80 children, 6 to 18 years old (43 boys) IQ: 50-85, mean:72, and their parents. All tested with the ADIS-C-PTSS. The interview results of parents and children were compared pairs-wise for the final diagnosis, and the underlying variables of which the diagnosis is made up of (i.e the traumatic event, burden and symptoms) Results The final diagnosis based on DSM-IV and DSM-V criteria has a low parent–child agreement. Mainly because there is disagreement about the amount of traumatic events and the worst traumatic event experienced. Parents and children show some agreement in burden and experienced symptoms. Conclusion There is little parent–child agreement on the ADIS-C-PTSD, when we look at the characteristics of post-traumatic stress disorder for children with mild intellectual disability. From this research it can be concluded that the reliability of the interview based on a single informant is lower than based on multiple informants
