|Title:||Validation of the Arabic Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire and the Development and Well-Being Assessment|
|Abstract:||We examined the validity of the Arabic versions of 2 main measures of child psychopathology: the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire [SDQ] and the Development and Well-Being Assessment [DAWBA]. They were administered to the parents and teachers of 2 samples of 5-12-year-old Yemeni children, one from psychiatric clinics [n = 87] and the other from the community [n = 100]. The SDQ scores distinguished well between the 2 samples and also between children with different psychiatric diagnoses. The DAWBA showed substantial agreement with independent clinic diagnosis. The brevity of the SDQ and the respondent-based nature of the DAWBA interview make these tools feasible for use in countries where there is a severe shortage of skilled manpower|
