Pediatric Symptom Checklist - 17

The Pediatric Symptom Checklist-17 (PSC-17) is a brief questionnaire used to screen for emotional and behavioral problems in children and adolescents. It consists of 17 items that assess a wide range of symptoms, including emotional difficulties, conduct problems, hyperactivity/inattention, and peer relationship issues. Parents or caregivers typically complete the questionnaire, rating the frequency of each symptom over the past month. The PSC-17 helps identify children who may benefit from further evaluation or intervention and guides appropriate follow-up care.
