In the stepwise discriminant analysis on retention status, EPSF subtest scores on expressive language were the most powerful predictors, followed by scores in the fine motor modality.
Results of the analyses on EPSF scores for predicted versus actual groups are shown in Table 4.
We used multiple regression to determine which EPSF modalities might be predictive of later reading achievement.
These students tended to be lower in SES, have lower EPSF scores, and have lower reading achievement scores.
An examination of the predictors of retention, referral, and placement status indicated that EPSF scores had some predictive value.
The introduction of the EPSF curriculum, which is then tailored to a child's needs, as a result of the EPSF modality profile, is an important beginning step in this direction.
The EPSF profile must be considered carefully in conjunction with other at-risk indicators, such as poor family support systems; low levels of parent education; and lack of, or inadequate, preschool experiences (Davis & McCaul, 1990).
