VCAMS children with emotional or behaviour difficulties

The Student Entrant Health Questionnaire (SEHQ) is a parent report instrument that records parent's concerns and observations about their child's health and wellbeing. It is also a tool for clinical practice and a point of engagement with parents and educators. The parents of all children beginning primary school in Victoria are asked to complete the SEHQ.

The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) is a brief behavioural screening questionnaire that is incorporated in the SEHQ (from 2010 onwards). It includes questions on 25 psychological attributes which are divided between five scales: emotional symptoms, conduct problems, hyperactivity, peer problems and prosocial behaviour (each scale has 5 items).
