The MMPI-168(L) and ADD in Assessing Psychopathology in Individuals with Mental Retardation: Between and Within Instrument AssociationsBy McDaniel, William E.; Passmore, Corie E.; Sewell, Hollie M.; Research in Developmental Disabilities, Vol. 24, No. 1, pp. 19-32
Publication Date: January/February 2003
Article discusses an abbreviated version of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory called the MMPI-168(L), which was modified for use with clients who have moderate or mild mental retardation. The test was administered to 58 participants, most of whom had co-existing dual psychiatric diagnoses, and compared with the Assessment of Dual Diagnosis (ADD). Correlations were examined among the raw scores on the ADD and the MMPI-168(L). The authors suggest that it might be necessary to administer both instruments, and to carefully consider behavioral history to accurately diagnose psychiatric disturbances or personality characteristics of individuals with mental retardation.
