DIVA 2.0 is a structured Diagnostic Interview for Adult ADHD, second edition.
The DIVA was first developed in Dutch by J.J.S. Kooij, MD PhD, psychiatrist, and M.H. Francken, MSc, psychologist in 2007. Since October 2010 a slightly adjusted version with an improved introduction of the DIVA is available (DIVA 2.0). Click here for the current available translations of DIVA 2.0. The DIVA was developed because there is a need for a structured diagnostic instrument in the field that is easily available at low costs, in many different languages, for research and clinical assessment purposes.
The DIVA investigates the DSM-IV criteria of ADHD in childhood and adulthood, as well as impairment in five areas of functioning in both life periods. In order to facilitate understanding of the criteria in daily life in both childhood and adulthood, every DSM-IV criterion is accompanied by several examples that can be probed. The same is true for the five areas of impairment: education, work, social relationships, social activities/leisure time, partner/family relationships and self-esteem.
