Mother-child agreement on the child assessment schedule with nonreferred children: a research note.


Journal Article

This study replicated with nonreferred children the finding with psychiatrically referred children that mother-child concordance was a function of symptom type. Low mother-child concordance for internalizing problems and moderate concordance for externalizing problems characteristic of psychiatric samples was found to generalize to nonreferred children. Furthermore, mother-child concordance was also found to be a function of child gender and age. The implications of these findings for screening or assessment of nonreferred children were examined.
