Understanding and Interpreting the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire

Introducing the SDQ

The SDQ is a brief screening tool used by schools, children’s services and mental health services to assess children’s social, emotional and mental health.

Our one-day CPD course empowers schools and education professionals with the knowledge and practical skills to implement the SDQ effectively.

A world-leading, evidence-based screening tool

Developed in 1997 by Dr Robert Goodman.

Track whole-school progress

With our analytics tools, you can track the progress of your school’s well-being initiatives over time. From students, to your mental health team, to every staff member in the school, everyone is accounted for.

By measuring the impact of your interventions, you can make data-driven decisions that enhance the overall well-being of your school, monitor changes and identify areas that require further attention.

All of this can be seen in one easy to digest dashboard, completely hassle-free.

Secure data migration and mapping

Move and map your data directly from your MIS directly into CORDS. We have ensured your data is transferred safely by working with WONDE. No data is transferred without authority from you. From then on, all data is encrypted and held in our secure platform.

Evidence a Pro Active Approach

We require schools to commit to assessing all students a minimum of twice a year. By doing this you gain better insight and understanding of what is working and where you can improve provision. Using CORDS action planning and pathway mapping you are able to produce reports, link emails and documents to and from other agencies, and track your outcomes in one organised place.

Track and Manage Complex Risk Factors

We understand that some students require more complex care services. That's why CORDS is designed to help you organise care pathways, track and manage complex risk factors, and coordinate large, multi-disciplinary clinical teams and support workers. With our system, you'll have a comprehensive view of what's going on, enabling you to provide the care your students need effectively.
