The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Young Children (TSCYC) evaluates acute and chronic posttraumatic symptomatology and other psychological sequelae of traumatic events in children ages 3-12 years.
Based on the Trauma Symptom Checklist For Children (TSCC), the TSCYC is a 90-item caretaker-report measure that can be administered in less than 20 minutes. Caretakers rate each of 90 symptoms on a four-point scale according to how frequently the symptom occurred in the previous month.
The TSCYC contains separate norms for males and females and for three age groups: 3-4 years, 5-9 years, and 10-12 years.
The TSCYC Profile Form (Male & Female) Ages 5-9 years is used for the 5-9 year old age group only. The Profile Form allows for the conversion of raw scores to T scores, and is used to graph the scores.
