The BDI-2 NU has been released with new norms that reflect changes in race, region and socioeconomic status. The changes in norms on the BDI-2 NU relative to the BDI-2 require slightly higher raw scores in several domains in order to achieve the same scaled score. The effect in the 0-3 age group is not as significant as with the 3.5-5 year old group but is notable in the personal-social, adaptive and communication areas, making it more likely for children to meet eligibility criteria.
The current BDI-2 kit remains valid however programs should purchase the new examiner manual which has updated scoring. If your program is using online scoring the new scoring norms are available at no additional cost.
