ADAPT© is an online questionnaire which gathers “biopsychosocial” (biological, psychological, and social) information about children in alternative care, ages 4-17. The ADAPT questionnaire was developed by a psychiatrist and a psychologist with many years of clinical experience in treating these children. ADAPT© can be filled out by the child’s/youth’s foster, kinship, or adoptive parent, caseworker, or therapist in about twenty minutes. A summary report is instantly generated which integrates answers into a format suitable for submission to mental health, social, and other helping professionals.
ADAPT questionnaire gathers information about demographics (age, gender, grade in school), the child’s strengths, trauma history, psychological and behavioral problems, psychiatric signs and symptoms, psychotropic medication use, and medical concerns.
