Abstract

Background: Several diagnostic and screening instruments are available for child and adolescent eating disorders. However, limitations have been identified in many of these. Method: We review the most frequently used assessment measures for eating disorders in children and adolescents. Results: Several of the available instruments have significant limitations, although relevant strengths are identified. Conclusions: Limitations in the current available instruments for child and adolescent eating disorders should be addressed in order to improve recognition and treatment.
