What is it about?
The Ten Questions Questionnaire (TQQ+) is a rapid screening tool developed for children aged 2-9 years in resource-poor settings. It has been successfully used in several countries as a disability screening tool. However, it has not been validated for older children. This study aims to validate the TQQ+ for older children by comparing its results with established assessments.

Why is it important?
Early identification and diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disabilities in children are crucial to provide timely interventions and support. Screening children not meeting developmental milestones can help identify those who would benefit from further evaluation and assistance. The Ten Questions Questionnaire (TQQ+) was developed as a quick screening tool for sensory, motor, cognitive, and seizure-related issues in children between the ages of 2 and 9, particularly in resource-poor settings. Children who screen positive on the TQQ+ may undergo further assessment for specific disabilities, which can be particularly valuable in countries with limited professional support.
