Abstract [en]

Background: Young children’s social-emotional problems can have a long-term effect if not treated early. In order to deepen our knowledge about children’s social and emotional functioning, we utilized the Ages and Stages Questionnaires: Social-Emotional (ASQ:SE) among 3-year-olds in Sweden aiming: 1) to identify ASQ:SE items that are most commonly endorsed by children with high level of social-emotional problems; and 2) to assess whether certain ASQ:SE items differs between boys and girls at the same level of social-emotional problems.

Methods: During 2014-2017 data was collected from 7179 three-year-old children through Child Health Care in a northern county of Sweden within the Salut Child Health Promotion Programme. Item Characteristic Curve (ICC) and Differential Item Functioning (DIF) were used to identify the characteristics of children with high social-emotional problems and to determine whether an item exhibit uniform between boys and girls at the same level of social-emotional problems.

Results: Items regarding interest in sexual words, too little sleep, disinterest in things around, unhappiness and self-injury were more commonly endorsed by children with high levels of social-emotional problems. Additionally, on the same level of social-emotional problem girls were more likely to score high in items regarding difficulties to occupy herself, clinging behaviour and repetitive behaviour while boys were more likely to score high in items regarding difficulty to name friends, difficulty to express feelings and destruction of things on purpose.

Conclusions: This study has increased our knowledge about Swedish young children’s social emotional functioning already at the age of three by detecting which items are most closely connected to high level of social-emotional problems and differences between boys and girls. However, whether the results detected in this analysis are reflecting their parents’ expectations more than child behaviour requires further investigations.

Key messages

  • Children with high level of social-emotional problems were rated high on items regarding interest in sexual words, too little sleep, disinterest in things around, unhappiness and self-injury.

  • On equal levels of social-emotional problems, girls were more often reported with internalizing problematic behaviours and boys were more often reported with externalizing problematic behaviours.
