Identification and Programming for Behaviorally Impaired Preschool Children: Current Procedures and Programs.
Zabel, Mary Kay
This document reviews problems in the identification and assessment of behavioral impairment in young students. Several models of emotional disturbance are reviewed and characteristics of behavior problems are outlined. Assessment methods discussed include observation of student behavior patterns and more formal instruments (such as the "Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale," the "Mother's Assessment of the Behavior of Her Infant,""Parent Behavior Progression" and the "Preschool Behavior Questionnaire"). Intervention issues are addressed in terms of prevention as well as home and center-based approaches including developmental therapy and the Portage Project Model. Reactions to the paper by teachers, administrators, and faculty members conclude the monograph. (CL)
