I was wondering if there are currently any diagnostic interview schedules that have been made/adapted to fit DSM-V criteria? Have you heard of anything?

Specifically, I am looking for interviews for children.

The SCID is a Structured Clinical Interview for DSM Disorders.

The SCID website talks about a version designed for children called the KID-SCID.

You mention a specific interest in DSM-V. Under "what's new", the SCID website states:

January 2013: Development efforts are underway for the SCID for DSM-5 and updated training materials, which are expected to be released in the fall/winter 2013.
