What is the SDQ?
The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) is a tool that helps us understand how children and teenagers are feeling and behaving.
It asks questions about different areas of their lives to see if they have any difficulties or challenges, as well as their strengths.
The questionnaire has 25 questions in total, and they are divided into five groups or scales. Each group looks at a different aspect of a child’s behaviour and emotions.
