The current study aimed at carrying out the cross-cultural adaptation of Diagnostic Inventory for Screening Children (DISC) to the Azerbaijani language. The study was a response to the growing demand in the sphere of child development assessment dictated by the lack of proper assessment tools in this sphere in Azerbaijan. The cross-cultural adaptation and following validation of the Azerbaijani version of the DISC was conducted in the country. A total of 250 subjects from urban and rural areas of Azerbaijan were enrolled to the study. The current paper presents the methodology used by the author and the results of the cross-cultural study on adaptation of the DISC. According to the results of the study the DISC is applicable to children in Azerbaijan. It has satisfactory psychometric properties, but further research is required to evaluate these properties in a population study.
