Abstract There is no structured diagnostic interview validated in Turkish for adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This study aimed to examine the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of the Diagnostic Interview for ADHD in adults 2.0 (DIVA-2.0). The sample included 158 patients with ADHD and 96 patients without ADHD referred to the ADHD outpatient clinic of the psychiatry department. Pearson's correlation coefficient was used to examine the convergent validity between DIVA-2.0 and the Wender Utah Rating Scale (WURS), the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). The internal consistency of DIVA- 2.0 was high. There were statistically significant differences for class repetition, employment status, job change, income, discipline penalty, BDI, BAI, WURS, and ASRS points between the ADHD and non-ADHD groups. Correlation analysis between DIVA-2.0 and WURS, ASRS, BDI, and BAI was statistically significant. These results show that the Turkish version of DIVA-2.0 presented good psychometric properties to diagnose ADHD in the Turkish population.
