Participants are currently being recruited to study the effectiveness of a new measure, the Asperger’s Disorder Behavior InventoryTM (ADBITM) by Ira Cohen, PhD. This instrument will assist in both the diagnosis and treatment planning of individuals who are classified at the higher range of functioning on the Pervasive Developmental Disability (PDD) spectrum and should be of benefit to the affected persons, their parents and to professionals. The study has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board of the New York State Institute for Basic Research in Developmental Disabilities and will run through the summer of 2008.

◆ Individuals who have been diagnosed by a clinical psychologist, school psychologist or other health professional as having ADHD, Conduct Disorder, Social Phobia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Reading Disability or Nonverbal Learning Disability.
◆ Individuals must be between the ages of 5 and 21.
