Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn about how a low income Mexican American population may respond to behavioral measures differently due to cultural values and perspectives.
  2. learn about the specific features of measures that they should be aware of when administering behavioral measures for populations not represented in the norm.
  3. learn about the psychometric properties of the Conners EC parent (Spanish) and teacher (English) version with a low income Mexican American population.


Instruments such as the Conners Early Childhood (Conners EC) are often used to assess symptoms of ADHD. However, such instruments have not been psychometrically examined for diverse populations, including young Latino children. This population is more likely to develop externalizing mental health disorders, such as ADHD. We will report the results of a study that suggest practitioners may need to use caution when using the Conners EC in assessment and intervention for young Latino children.
