The Comprehensive Evaluation of Family Functioning: A Psychometric Assessment.
Taylor, Matthew J.; Crowley, Susan L.
Early intervention has shifted in focus to family centered assessment and treatment. The Comprehensive Evaluation of Family Functioning was developed to meet the need for accurate family assessment, but limited psychometric information on the measure is available. The present research investigated the psychometric properties of the CEFF with a sample of 214 families having children with disabilities. Results of factor analytic techniques suggests that the CEFF can best be described with five lower order and two higher order factors. Reliability coefficients are adequate and validity analyses suggest that the CEFF is primarily a measure of stress. Implications for interventions and continued improvement of the CEFF are discussed.
