DEMENTIA SCALE FOR DOWN SYNDROME (DSDS)

Gedye, Angela

~ (1995) is an informant-based rating instrument for use by psychologists in assessing the presence or absence of dementia in adults with Down syndrome. It has also been effective in assessing dementia in developmentally disabled (MR) adults without Down syndrome. DSDS was designed so that persons in the severe and profound ranges can be assessed. DSDS Also permits tracking of change over time.
Scoring criteria reflect severity of dementia in early middle or late stages. The author contends that younger DS adults may develop a dememtia which is symptomatically identical to Alzheimers disease -- however, this "early onset" dementia is potentially reversible. A DSDS booklet can be used up to 10 times in re-assessing the same client. The booklet is used to track recovery in the event that the individual has a reversible dementia.
ADMINISTRATION: Interview with caregivers, 20-60 minutes
RANGE: MR Adults LEVEL: C
