The CAIR is a psychometrically-sound instrument that helps with the early identification and remediation of a youth’s relationship difficulties, and assists with the identification of Emotional Disturbance (ED) by assessing the quality of relationships.

The CAIR measures the youth’s perception regarding the quality of relationships in three primary contexts (Social Family and Academic) of their lives:

  • Mother
  • Father
  • Male Peers
  • Female Peers
  • Teachers

The 35 CAIR items reflect the 15 specific aspects of relationships that are commonly reported in the literature, thereby helping the clinician to identify the specific relationship qualities that may be deficient, and require intervention.

The CAIR normative sample was composed of 2,501 children enrolled in Grades 5-12, between 9-19 years of age. The CAIR was group administered to children of both genders, from all major racial/ethnic groups.

The instrument demonstrates exceptional technical adequacy, with reliabilities well above .90 for all five scales, as well as the Total Relationship Index (TRI). For each grade level, the TRI coefficient alpha is .96, and the TRI coefficient for the entire standardization sample is .96. Each scale demonstrates internal consistency estimates that exceed .90, regardless of the child’s age or gender. Each CAIR scale, and the TRI, is sufficiently reliable to contribute to important identification decisions.

The CAIR Kit includes a Manual and 25 each of the Rating Forms and Score Summary/Profile Forms.
