Abstract

This paper is a reply to an article in this journal by M. Zimmerman titled "The Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment: A Comment on Elardo and Bradley's Review". We found Zimmerman's critique of our original review article (Developmental Review, 1981, 1, 113-145) to contain points which were well taken, and several which seemed pedantic. Specifically, we address his concerns about our discussion of the HOME scale's interrater reliability, test-retest stability, concurrent validity, and predictive validity; and we reply to his comments about the uses of the HOME scale for purposes of screening and matching environments.
