Adolescent Symptom Inventory- 4 (ASI-4)

by Kenneth D. Gadow, Ph.D., and Joyce Sprafkin, Ph.D.

The third in this series of DSM-IV-based symptom checklists, the ASI-4 can be used to evaluate 12- through
18-year-olds. It consists of two checklists--one completed by the teacher and one completed by the parent
or anyone familiar with the teenager's behavioral and emotional functioning.
The ASI screens for symptoms of the most common adolescent disorders and problem areas specified in the
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA):

ADHD Schizophrenia
Conduct Disorder Schizoid Personality
Antisocial Personality Panic Attack
Separation Anxiety Specific Phobia
Generalized Anxiety Bipolar Disorder
Social Phobia Vocal Tics
Depression Motor Tics
Dysthymia Anorexia
Oppositional Defiant Disorder Bulimia
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Drug Use

Completed in just 10 to 15 minutes, the ASI-4 provides symptom cutoff scores based on DSM-IV. School
personnel can use these scores to help determine whether a formal clinical evaluation is warranted. Clinical
psychologists and psychiatrists can use them to focus their diagnostic evaluations.
