Evaluated the concurrent validity of the Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed. [DSM-IV], American Psychiatric Association, 1994): Child and Parents Versions (ADIS for DSM-IV-C/P; Silverman & Albano, 1996) social phobia, separation anxiety disorder (SAD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and panic disorder diagnoses. Children referred to an outpatient anxiety disorder clinic (N = 186; ages 8 to 17), and their parents completed the Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (MASC; March, 1998) and the ADIS-C/P interview. There was no convergence between MASC scores and ADIS-C/P GAD diagnoses. However, there was strong correspondence between ADIS-C/P social phobia, SAD, and panic disorder diagnoses and the empirically derived MASC factor scores corresponding to these disorders. These results provide support for the concurrent validity of the anxiety disorders section of the ADIS-C/P.
