ABSTRACT
An exploratory study was conducted to establish the educational risk profile of first and second grade children and to analyze its relationship with school and family risk factors. The WISC-RM was administered to 206 children, who attended a public school; 51% of them were from first grade and 49%, from second grade. Other specific tests were administered to those children who showed some kind of disability. Their teachers were interviewed as well as 24 of their mothers. The resulting profile highlighted that a significant percentage (37%) of the children who had just started school showed some kind of problem related to school and family risk factors. The relevance of early detection and intervention is stressed in order to prevent school desertion
