A Theoretical Model for Assessment of Adolescents [microform] : The Ecological/Behavioral Approach / Sherry Laten and Gwynne Katz

Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1975 
77 p. 

The paper discusses an ecological model of assessment (i.e., one which examines the interaction between the child and his environment) and how it might be used with emotionally disturbed adolescents. A literature review focuses on current trends in assessment; the origins of the ecological perspective; and the ecological perspective in the school environment, in special education in general, and in the special education of adolescents. Research in the areas of ecological assessment, behavioral-ecological assessment, and behavioral-ecological programing is also reviewed. Some theoretical considerations for an ecological assessment model are discussed, including delineating the primary environments in which the child operates, and determining where there is a "poor fit" between child and environment which has led to the referral. An extended example is used to illustrate the ecological-behavioral assessment of adolescents, using an assessment model that is divided into five major phases: referral, expectations of the child's behavior, behavioral descriptions, summary of data, and establishment of reasonable expectations.
