The aim of this research has been to elaborate two language versions of a preliminary questionnaire that could assess the level of knowledge that infant and primary teachers have with respect to the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) regarding four content areas: General information, Symptoms/Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment. For that purpose, two studies were carried out. In the first one 16 ADHD experts took part, who assessed the suitability of aspects related to the content validity of the instrument; in the second study, a pilot version of the questionnaire was applied to 166 teachers coming from 17 schools in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country and Navarre with the purpose to improve and refine it. In general, results showed good Cronbach’s alpha coefficients for the two language versions of the test, which ranged between 0.55 and 0.85 for the Basque version and between 0.67 and 0.84 for the Spanish version. It should be noted that such questionnaire is under a validation process, therefore evidences about its validity need to be collected.
