Kinship Center Attachment Questionnaire

The Kinship Center Attachment Questionnaire is a caregiver-completed measure of attachment for children younger than 6 years old. It is a psychometrically sound measure that can be used along with clinical judgment to assess the attachment of young children who are making the adjustment to a new family or other circumstances when there is a need to assess the emotional bonds that support healthy development in young children.

Complete information can be found in

We ask that users of the scale send us any relevant data (with identifying information removed) so that we can continue to assess its psychometric properties. If users translate it to another language, we would like to have a copy of the translation, which may be beneficial to other users.
