ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education, Urbana, IL.
There are 11 behavioral dimensions which parents and preschool teachers can use in assessing the development of preschool children. These dimensions are: (1) sleeping; (2) eating; (3) toilet habits; (4) range of affect or emotion; (5) variations in play; (6) curiosity; (7) acceptance of authority; (8) initiative; (9) interest; (10) spontaneous affection; and (11) enjoyment of the "good things of life." By observing children over a period of time, adults can use information related to these dimensions to determine whether or not a child is developing normally. (DC)
