J Pediatr. 1988 Feb;112(2):201-9

I➜The Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC) is a brief psychosocial screening instrument that is used by pediatricians and other health professionals to improve the recognition and treatment of psychosocial problems in children. This scoring system consists of 35-items that are rated as never, sometimes, or often present and scored 0, 1, and 2, respectively. Item scores are summed and the total score is recoded into a dichotomous variable indicating psychosocial impairment.
