EARLY CHILDHOOD INVENTORY
- 4 (ECI-4)
Ages 3 to 5 Years By Joyce Sprafkin, Ph.D. and Kenneth D. Gadow, Ph.D
The Early Childhood Inventory-4 (ECI-4) is a
behavior rating scale that screens for DSM-IV emotional and behavioral disorders
in children between 3 and 5 years old. The
ECI-4: Parent Checklist contains
108 items that screen for 15 emotional and behavioral disorders, and the ECI-4:
Teacher Checklist contains 87 items that screen for 13 emotional and behavioral
disorders. The ECI-4 can be scored
to derive Symptom Count scores (diagnostic model) or Symptom Severity scores
(normative data model). Scoring is
quick and easy with user-friendly score sheets.

scores demonstrate satisfactory test-retest reliability, show a high degree of
correspondence with psychiatric diagnosis (predictive validity), and correlate
well with other commonly used dimensional scales (concurrent validity).

Checklist (N=398) consisted of children between 3 and 5 years old who attended
day care, preschool, and Head Start programs.
T scores and raw scores for males and females are presented separately on
