The academic arm of the European Chiropractic Union (ECU) is the European Academy of Chiropractic (EAC). Within the EAC are special interest groups (SIG) focusing on postgraduate education for chiropractors in the areas of pediatrics, neurology, clinical chiropractic and sports chiropractic. Children are one of the unique populations presenting to the chiropractor requiring a different skill set than that utilized to assess the adult patient. In recognition of this, the EAC’s SIG for pediatrics has developed history, examination and questionnaire forms for children with headache. The aim of these forms is to assist the chiropractor in identifying red flags and to skillfully differentially diagnose headaches as they present throughout growth and development. The process of development of these forms is outlined, and three forms are presented in this article.
