Sammanfattning

The impact of short stature on children is commonly assessed in terms of psychosocial consequences. Proxy respondents and formal behavioural performance tests constitute standard methods in the evaluation of growth hormone therapy in children of short stature. Therefore, a self-administered, short and simple adjective check-list was developed and tested on 342 children of both sexes, aged 9–13 years. Six dimensions covering alertness, self-esteem, mood, elation, stability and vitality were derived after factor analysis. High internal consistency reliability was found for all dimensions. Modest correlations with height, reaching statistical significance for alertness, mood and vitality, were observed. Girls described themselves as having lower self-esteem and vitality than boys, while boys had lower scores for elation. It was concluded that the measure was relevant and potentially useful in children with short stature.
