Analyzing Behavioral Problems in the Young Child.
This document presents two measures used by the Parent-Child Early Education Program of the Ferguson-Florrisant School District in Missouri for identifying preschool children with special behavior problems. The first measure, My Preschool Child, is a checklist to be filled out by the parent on the child's personal and social development, language and concept development, physical skill development, behavior problems, and interests and experiences. Rationale for the development of the checklist is presented along with information about the use of the behavioral checklist portion of the instrument and strategies for interpretation of the data obtained with this measure. The second measure, the Nursery School Adjustment Rating Scale, is to be used by teachers in rating the child's personal-social development. Items included deal with the teacher's observations of the child's behavior and her knowledge of the child's family. Rationale for development of this rating scale is also given, as well as information about the administration, interpretation, and the relationship of the adjustment scores from this measure to other data. Copies of both instruments are included. (JMB)
