Author information

  • 1Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie des Kindes-und Jugendalters, Frankfurt, Germany.


The feasibility and reliability of the German form of the revised parental interview to diagnose autism (Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised, ADI-R) was investigated in this study. Brief examples of the description of formerly and currently used diagnostic guidelines are given and the outline of the interview algorithm which establishes thresholds for inclusion criteria. An excellent-to-good reliability could be demonstrated for the main symptoms according to the classification rules of the ICD-10 and DSM-IV for a sample of autistic subjects at different ages and intellectual levels. The results approve the use of this interview for research and clinical purposes.
