Abstract
To more fully understand the impact of stuttering on preschoolers’ self-concept, we need to know how to validly and reliably measure these constructs. The purpose of this study was to develop a parent version of the Self-Description Questionnaire for Preschoolers (SDQP-P). Participants were 104 parents of typically fluent preschoolers (3;0-5;0). An exploratory factor analysis revealed a six factor structure: three factors consistent with earlier research (Physical Abilities, Physical Appearance, and Peer Relationships) and three new factors (Child- and Parent-initiated Parent Relationship factors, representing a split of the earlier found Parent Relationship factor, and Pre-academic Skills, representing the collapse of the earlier found Math and Verbal subscales). Measures of internal consistency for the factor subscales ranged from .52 to .81 and test-retest reliabilities ranged from .43 to .83. Findings of this pilot study indicate that future research to establish the validity and reliability of the SDQP-P is warranted.
