A comprehensive process in which data is collected about how a child functions in different environments or settings

Information from an ecological assessment is often obtained through:

information about physical environment
patterns of behavior and activity
interaction between authority figure and child
interaction between children
Expectations of the child by parents, teachers, and peers
