Helping to identify children/young people who may have a learning disability

This short questionnaire is designed to help identify children and young people who may have a learning disability. It was developed to give parents, families and professionals who have concerns that a child/young person may have a learning disability a quick and easy indication of whether they do. It is based on extensive research, is valid and reliable, can be completed quickly and can discriminate with high levels of accuracy between those who have a learning disability and those who do not.

Please remember that the screening questionnaire is just that: an initial indicator of whether someone might have a learning disability or not. Further professional psychological assessment is always required to confirm this.

Please answer the questions as accurately as you can. The questionnaire is not suitable for children under 6 years old or young people aged over 18 years.

    Pleases generate your own code to be used on the results of the screening questionnaire. This should be: the number of your house, followed by the first two letters of the month you were born, followed by the first two initials of your mother's first name.

    For example if you live at 6 Anon Road, were born in May and your mother's name is Angela, your code would be: 6MAAN.
