Presented by: Glen P. Aylward, PhD, ABPP
This session will focus on the theoretical foundations of Bayley-4, and rationale for new concepts introduced to further refine its main purpose of identifying developmental delays. These concepts include:
- The introduction of a polytomous scoring approach (scores of 0, 1, & 2), rather than a dichotomous scoring format, which better captures the emergence and mastery of developmental skills.
- Introduction of Caregiver Report in approximately 50 items
- Reduced administration time through the introduction of innovations such as digital administration.
- Refinement of content to accomplish its main purpose, namely to better identify developmental delays.
Based on the content of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss at least two ways the Bayley 4 offers better information to identify delays in development.
- Describe the advantages of 0, 1, 2 scoring over a 0-1 scores.
- Explain at least one benefit and one caution when using the Bayley-4 caregiver report.
- Describe at least one way the Bayley-4 digital administration streamlines test administration and scoring.
