Abstract
Objective: Impulsivity is a multifaceted construct known to play a crucial role in the development and maintenance of a
wide range of problematic behaviors and psychological disorders in children. Method: In this study, we adapted the short
French adult version of the UPPS-P (urgency–premeditation–perseverance–sensation seeking–positive urgency) Impulsive
Behaviors Scale for use with children (short UPPS-P-C) and tested its psychometric properties. Results: Confirmatory
factor analyses conducted on a sample of 425 children (aged 8-14 years) supported the five-factor structure of the scale.
Additional analyses emphasized the good internal and test–retest reliability of the short UPPS-P-C. Furthermore, our
results also revealed that lack of premeditation, positive urgency, and negative urgency subscales were able to discriminate
between children diagnosed with ADHD and their matched controls. Conclusion: These results suggest that the short
UPPS-P-C may be considered as a promising time-saving tool to assess impulsivity traits in healthy children and in children
with psychiatric disorders.
