Maitree Shah, Jalpa Parikh


Abstract: Background: Children with Cerebral palsy (CP) are more prone to sleep disturbances than their peers. Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children (SDSC) originally in English language, is a tool to evaluate sleep disorders in children with age 6 to 15 years. Aim: To translate SDSC into Gujarati language and to evaluate psychometric characteristics of SDSC in CP children to use it clinically on Gujarati population. Method: SDSC questionnaire was translated into Gujarati language from English using forward-backward translation method. Content validity for the SDSC-Gujarati version (SDSC-G) was examined by the group of expert members using consensus method. Test- retest reliability for SDSC-Gujarati version (SDSC-G) was examined in 30 CP children. Subjects completed questionnaire twice with in interval of 48 hours. Results: Content Validity was found to be excellent and ICC indicated good reliability. Conclusion: The SDSC-G is reliable in screening for sleep disorders in CP children having Gujarati speaking families.
