What is it about?
Screening children for behavioral problems using a questionnaire is not routinely recommended in the US for children between the ages 3 to 5 years old. We found that children aged 3 to 5 year who were screened for behavioral problems were more likely to be diagnosed and treated for behavioral problems.
