From the Back Cover
The Bayley Scales measure the mental and motor development and test behavior of infants from one to forty-two months of age. The Scales may be used to describe the current developmental functioning of infants and to assist in diagnosis and treatment planning for infants with developmental delays or disabilities. In order to use them properly, professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret these tests. Essentials of Bayley Scales of Infant Development?II Assessment is the first and only book to provide state-of-the-art guidelines for the Bayley Scales.
