Relationships Among Traditional and Behavior Assessment Procedures in a Behavioral Research Program.
The paper is designed to lay the foundation for a traditional assessment program in a systematic research effort on the identification of and intervention with at risk and handicapped infants and young children. Initial sections review literature on the qualities of traditional psychometric assessment and on the qualities of a behavioral assessment program. It is explained in a third section that the proposed program will involve a longitudinal approach to the development of systematic and accurate procedures for identifying children and infants who are at risk for handicapping conditions, to the measurement of environmental events in home and school situations for the purpose of identifying those variables related to handicapping conditions, and to the development of and validation of intervention strategies which alleviate handicapping conditions in these children. A final section considers the relationship of traditional assessment to the behavioral research program. (SBH)
