Project Description

Behaviour problems occur at a much higher rate in young people with developmental problems. Difficulties present from an early age and persist over time. In order to understand how these problems begin and to develop early intervention programmes, it is necessary to examine these difficulties in young children with developmental delay. As we have no instruments to assess such problems in very young children with developmental delay, the authors have developed such a tool. This study will validate and develop standard norms for this tool, determine how many young children with developmental delay have behaviour and emotional problems, and how this impacs their families.
