Assessment of Behavior Disorders and Developmental Delay: Parent-Teacher Agreement.
Ruttle, Kristi; Dick, Diane F.
The paper discusses a method of integrating parent report with teacher report on the Minnesota Child Development Inventory (MCDI) and the Burks Behavior Rating Scale (BBRS) to aid in the assessment and placement of young children with behavior disorders and developmental delay. Two samples of children were used to collect the data: 3 to 6 year old children with developmental disabilities and 6 to 9 year old children with behavior disorders. Both the parent and teacher of each child completed the MCDI or the BBRS. The MCDI was used for developmental delay and the BBRS for behavior problems. Parent-teacher data were found to be highly correlated for behavior problems (BBRS) and for the child's overall developmental level (MCDI). (Author/SW)
