DIVA 2.0 is the acronym for the structured Diagnostic Interview for Adult ADHD, second edition. The DIVA 2.0 asks about the presence of ADHD symptoms in adulthood as well as childhood, chronicity of these symptoms, and significant clinical or psychosocial impairments due to these symptoms.

 

The DIVA was developed and translated in different languages, because there is a need for a structured diagnostic instrument in the field that is easily available at low costs for research and clinical assessment purposes.

 

The threshold for patients to get proper assessment for ADHD in adulthood is still very high in most countries due to a lack of knowledge and experience of professionals, due to myths and stigma around a childhood disorder that is not outgrown, and due to a fear of treatment with stimulants. However, ADHD has been shown to be a frequent disorder in adults with a prevalence rate of 3-5%. ADHD is a chronic and impairing disorder that can be effectively treated. In order to lower at least one barrier to diagnostic assessment, the DIVA Foundation feels that the instrument should be freely available via internet for those who need it. We hope the DIVA will serve patients, clinicians, and researchers to have easy access to the careful diagnostic assessment of ADHD in adults.
