Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1984 
79 p. 

The Kreger Model is a developmental approach to the identification and assessment of, and intervention with, emotionally disturbed children. Principles fundamental to a developmental paradigm are outlined, and assumptions fundamental to the Kreger Model pointed out. It is explained that the Kreger Model is a direct response to criteria which include a method to evaluate the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the child's psychological functioning. Using an integration of the major works in emotional, social, and cognitive development, the authors describe the construction and purposes of the model. An assessment instrument, based on the model, is discussed in terms of styles of behavioral patterns, and use of observational techniques. The model is also considered for facilitating emotional, social, and related cognitive functioning. It is explained that after assessing the child's functoning in the various areas and obtaining a summative profile of his baseline abilities, the starting point for meeting needs and for the interventions is pinpointed. Directions for using the intervention design are given along with a verbatim description of the suggested programmatic interventions to be used with a disturbed child. Also provided are guidelines for using the model in designing individualized educational plans, and for record keeping and monitoring progress. (SW)
