Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to determine the level of agreement among parents and teachers as informants in each one of the dimensions or diagnostic categories of the Early Childhood Inventory-4 (ECI-4). Moreover, the effect of health problems in parents in the description and appraisal of behaviour of a sample of 204 students of preschool (3-6 years) of various socioeconomic profiles is analyzed. The results indicate that parents tend to value the symptoms with greater severity, and higher agreement was observed when informing about developmental disorders. Copyright © 2008 Psicothema.
