Abstract

Background Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit
and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are nowadays becoming more
and more frequently found. Parents are worried of the possibility
that their children suffer from them. Growth and development
clinics (GDC) should be able to deliver professional services. Thus
a practica~ applicable, objective, valid, reliable, and able to measure
development quotient (DQ) values instrument is needed.
Objective To find out whether the Denver II instrument and
DQ values can be used in the management of children with ASD
andADHD.
Methods A study was carried out on cases of children with
ASD, multisystem development disorder (MSDD), pervasive
development disorder - n ot otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and
attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), consisting
of history taking, physical examination, establishing diagnosis,
therapy, evaluation, and follow-up. The Denver II instrument
was used and DQ values in all development streams established.
The study was done at the GDC of Hermina Depok Hospital in
July 2008 - June 2009.
Results It revealed that results of the Denver II as seen on the
filled Denver II form showed "typical" features related to kind of
disorder as far as category ofDQ value, dissociation, global delayed
development (GDD) as well as abnormality of the test behavior
were concerned. It also revealed that establishing the diagnoses
by the use of the Denver II and DQ values gave exactly the same
diagnoses as when using the conventional way by the expert.
Conclusion The Denver II instrument with DQ values can be
used in the management of ASD and ADHD cases. [Paediatr
