The EDDT is first instrument of its kind to provide a standardized approach to the assessment of emotional disturbance (ED). It is a standardized, norm-referenced assessment designed to assist in the identification of children who qualify for the federal special education category of ED. The EDDT addresses the broad emotional and behavioral nuances of children who may require special education services for ED.

How does the EDDT help me assess psychosis/schizophrenia?
The EDDT helps the clinician work through the federal criteria for eligibility for ED in an organized manner. The Possible Psychosis cluster of items screens for common possible psychotic/schizophrenic features but is NOT diagnostic of psychosis or schizophrenia. The clinician may choose to include a recommendation to consider additional evaluation.
Does the EDDT map to the criteria set forth by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)?
Yes, the EDDT will help you assess all the areas required to make a recommendation for special education services. Administer the EDDT to the teacher, a parent, and the student themselves and then quickly score in PARiConnect. A multirater report shows you side-by-side results of up to four raters.
What is the Multirater Summary Report?
The Multirater Summary Report, available for free, can be used to review responses from multiple raters over time to create a well-rounded picture of an individual's functioning. It combines EDDT scores from up to four raters (parent, teacher, student) to provide a well-rounded view of student functioning. It includes a combined score profile to represent similarities and differences between raters graphically and highlights statistically significant score differences. The EDDT Criteria Table aligns each rater’s scores to the federal criteria for ED diagnosis. To view a sample report, visit the Resources tab.
