Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children (TSCYC)

The TSCYC is the first fully standardized and normed broadband trauma measure for young children who have been exposed to traumatic events such as child abuse, peer assault, and community violence.

The 12-item TSCYC Screening Form screens for posttraumatic symptomology in just 5 minutes. 

Features and benefits

  • Caretaker report is valid and easy to administer.
  • Caretakers rate each of 90 symptoms on a four-point scale according to how frequently the symptom occurred in the previous month.

Test structure

  • Eight clinical scales (Anxiety, Depression, Anger/Aggression, Posttraumatic Stress-Intrusion, Posttraumatic Stress-Avoidance, Posttraumatic Stress-Arousal, Dissociation, and Sexual Concerns) and a summary scale provide valuable information to help you evaluate acute and chronic symptomatology and provide information on other symptoms found in many traumatized children.
  • Specific scales ascertain the validity of the caretaker’s report.
  • PTSD Diagnosis Worksheet helps you evaluate PTSD criteria, providing a possible PTSD diagnosis.
  • Contains separate norms for males and females and for three age groups: 3-4 years, 5-9 years, and 10-12 years.
  • TSCYC scale patterns have been found to predict different forms of trauma exposure in a published study of traumatized children.
  • Spanish-language forms are available. 

Scoring software also available

The unlimited-use TSC-SP automatically scores the TSCC™, the TSCC-A, or the TSCYC after the client’s responses are entered by the clinician. It will generate a score report and graphic profile of the results.
