New Screening Tool for Juvenile Bipolar Disorder

Cbqscreen
Many parents struggle with children and teenagers who suffer from early-onset bipolar disorder, but the lag time between initial symptoms and accurate diagnosis can take up to 8 – 10 years!

Yesterday, flyte finished programming new automatic, online scoring of two screening instruments for the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation. These screening tools include the Child Bipolar Questionnaire and the Jeannie and Jeffrey Illustrated Interview for Children.

As Demitri Papolos, Director of Research for the JBRF writes:

This is the first time the two companion interviews are available together with scoring and interpretation. We hope parents will find these tools useful and that they provide additional information to clinicians and educators who work with their children. If you are a parent or if you know anyone that might benefit from this program, please pass this information along to them.

It can be a terrifying experience to be a parent of a child suffering from early-onset bipolar disorder, and even more terrible not to know. These online tools can be an important first step to get families the help they need.
