Children Looked After

When families seek support, the Local Authority Children’s Services will assess them. Sometimes the outcome is that the child is ‘looked after’ by the Local Authority. You can find out more here:

The Strength and difficulties questionnaire [SDQ]

The SDQ is a clinically validated brief behavioural screening questionnaire. It is used with children who are looked after from ages 11-17 to enable social workers and other professionals to form a view about the emotional wellbeing of a child who is looked after. The questionnaire exists in three versions: a self-evaluation for the child, a version for parents/carers and one for teachers.
