The Pediatric Symptom Checklist is a brief screening questionnaire that is used by pediatricians and other health professionals to improve the recognition and treatment of psychosocial problems in children as early as possible. The target population is children between the ages of 4 – 18 years.

PSC consists of 35 items that are rated by the parent or guardian. A youth version, ages 12 – 18 years is also available where the questions are rated by the adolescent directly. Data on PSC negative screens indicate 95 percent accuracy.


Fast and easy to use, the PTI App version of the PSC is an economical, reliable and validated method to screen. Questions are presented one at a time with a single click answer to advance to the next question. The question format automatically adapts to the respondents device (smartphone, tablet or PC) making the PTI App version of the PSC ideal for mobile devices. Using PTI data services, when a questionnaire is complete it is immediately scored electronically and an in-depth report with summary and trending analysis is generated. Results can be printed, loaded into an EMR/EHR and are available as a PDF.
