Abstract

A tool designed to screen for the most common sleep problems in children, the CSHQ consists of 33 items for scoring and several extra items intended to provide administrators with other potentially useful information about re­­spondents. The instrument evaluates the child’s sleep based on behavior within eight different subscales: bedtime resistance, sleep-onset delay, sleep duration, sleep anxiety, night wakings, parasomnias, sleep-disordered breathing, and daytime sleepiness.
