Parent Inventory of Child Development in Nonschool Environments. (Working Copy).
Vincent, Lisbeth; And Others
Designed to inform professionals about how a child behaves when not in school, the Parent Inventory of Child Development in Nonschool Environments assesses the affective behavior (including activity level, adaptability, distractability, moodiness, sociability and persistence) and the fine motor, gross motor, communication skills, and cognitive skills of children from birth to 24 months, 24 months to 36 months, 36 months to 48 months, and 48 months to 60 months. Also assessed at each of the age levels are children's self-help skills. In answering questions such as "Does your child calm down when you comfort him?" parents choose from these responses: "My child does this consistently,""My child is starting to do this,""My child does not do this,""I would like doing this to be a goal for my child," or "I'm not sure why this is important for my child to do." Directions suggest that many persons may be involved in answering the questions, including family members, babysitter, daycare teacher, next door neighbor, and/or friend. Parents are instructed to complete the section assessing affective behavior and select the age-related section that best matches their child's level of functioning. (RH)
