Abstract

This study aims to describe the problems experienced by elementary school-aged children using the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ). The results of this study are expected to provide a better understanding of the problems experienced by elementary school-age children, so that it can help educators, parents, and professionals in planning appropriate interventions. The participants of this study were 82 elementary school-aged children aged 6–7 years. The data obtained were analyzed descriptively to identify common problems faced by children, further using the item person map from Rasch model to see the distribution of problems experienced by children based on the algorithm created. The results of this study provide an overview of the social, emotional, behavioral, and strength problems of elementary school-age children in the sample studied. Based on the categorization of SDQ, in the abnormal category, peer problems (67%) are the most common problems experienced by school-age children. Then the next order is hyperactivity 22%, behavioral problems 21%, and emotional problems 15%. In the borderline category, most problems are related to behavioral problems, namely 32%, then the next order is emotional problems by 18%, and peer problems by 15%. Meanwhile, based on the item person map from Rasch model, it is found that the majority of children's problems both from the dimensions of peers (66%), hyperactivity (51%), emotional problems (49%) and behavior (43%) are in the moderate category.
