A Model for Prevention: A Kindergarten Screening Program.
Berger, Susan; Perlman, Evelyn
A program based on the use of the Kindergarten Questionnaire (K-Q) is described, with emphasis on the questionnaire's potential as an assessment tool for prevention of learning and emotional problems. The goals of the questionnaire program are (1) to assess readiness in children, (2) to provide more complete information to teachers, (3) to inform the family of available services in a non-threatening way, (4) to help the system with its service to the child, and (5) to provide mental health service to the community, using the school as a vehicle. Procedures that have been used to implement the use of K-Q in early childhood education programs are described. Also included is data that has been collected concerning predictive validity of the instrument, based on a sample of 493 children. (DP)
