Abstract

The present study tested Greenpan's model of personal competence with data obtained from the Early Screening Profiles, a nationally standardized preschool screening battery designed to measure the general functioning level of children 2-7 years of age. Of the five models tested (three a priori and two a posteriori), three models produced results indicative of a good fit. These findings support the use of Greenspan's model of personal competence as a framework for understanding the nature of developing abilities in young children as well as for the improvement of classification and diagnosis of children with special needs.
