Conners CI™
Conners Clinical Index

C. Keith Conners, Ph.D.


The Conners CI™ is a useful and quick screening and pre-evaluation tool used to identify if further evaluation is warranted. The Conners CI is available as part of the Conners Comprehensive Behavior Rating Scales™ (Conners CBRS™) and also can be purchased separately as a standalone form. The Conners CI can help determine if further assessment is required in the following areas: Disruptive Behavior Disorders, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Learning and Language Disorders, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The Conners CI can also assist in planning and monitoring treatment/intervention.
