Abstract: 
Objective: The study was designed to evaluate the validity of Farsi version of Strenghts and Oifficulties Questionnaire (SDQ).
Method: Validity of the parent and teacher versions of SDQ was assessed in a community sample of Iranian school children aged 6 to 11 years (n=600). The results of SDQ were compared to the diagnoses made by child and adolescent psychiatrist and K-SADS diagnostic interview.
Results: Scores of the parent and teacher versions of SDQ were positively correlated. Comparing the scores of hyperactivity and total difficulties of psychiatric diagnoses showed that SDQ has an acceptable validity. Calculated cut off points were comparable to the results of other countries.
Conclusion: Farsi version of SDQ has good psychometric properties, and could be used for screening of Iranian children with behavioral and emotional problems. A similar study with SDQ on adolescents is recommended.
