Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire - Parent (SDQ-Parent) and Impact Supplement (SDQ-Parent-Impact)
The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) is a brief screen for child psychiatric disorders designed for children aged 4-17, with subscales measuring emotional problems, conduct problems, hyperactivity, peer problems, and prosocial behaviour. There is also an Impact Supplement that measures distress and impairment due to emotional and behavioural problems. The parent-report version was tested with parents of Syrian children aged 8-17 years old and living as refugees in Lebanon. The official Arabic version of the SDQ was used with no modifications for the target population (no modification of the SDQ is permitted).
