PINOCHET-QUIROZ, Palmenia et al. Psychometric Properties of the CABI Inventory in the determination of ADHD. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.3, pp.31-39. ISSN 2631-2581.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most frequent mental health issues among children and adolescents worldwide. Current literature shows that ADHD could affect both academic and work performances of those who present it. The aim of the present study was to analyze the psychometric properties of the Child and Adolescence Behavior Inventory (CABI) through an exploratory study, based on the report of 350 Chilean parents. Results indicated a three-dimensional model (sluggish cognitive tempo, inattention and hyperactivity) with adequate fit of the data (RMSEA=0.065; CFI= 0.954; TLI=0.941; PL=207) that explained 61.76% of the total variance with an Alpha of 0.961. Results show that the subscales analyzed have acceptable psychometric properties, an adequate internal consistency and that their indicators have a correct discriminatory power. Therefore, according to these preliminary results, CABI can be considered a useful assessment tool for the diagnosis of ADHD. Implications for practice, policy and future research are discussed.
