The KADI enables professionals to accurately distinguish individuals with Asperger's disorder from individuals with other forms of high functioning autism. This very difficult diagnostic decision is made easier with the KADI. Once the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) team is aware that the person may have Asperger's disorder, a more appropriate IEP can be written. Information associated with the KADI can be used to help assess a student's educational needs. The KADI is also a prescreening scale that immediately identifies individuals who do not have Asperger's disorder.
