Examination of Infant (64KB)
This brief physical examination was administered to infants soon after birth and includes information on congenital anomalies and the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID). Bayley Scales measure mental (MDI) and motor (or physical) development (PDI) and behavior of infants from one to 42 months of age. The BSID measures a child's level of development in three domains: cognitive, motor and behavioral.
This brief physical examination was administered to children more than 1-year-old and includes information on congenital anomalies and abnormalities, an annual repeat of the Bayley BSID (MDI and PDI), and the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities (MSCA). The McCarthy Scales uses game-like tasks to assess the abilities of preschool children, producing 6 scale scores: verbal, perceptual-performance, quantitative, composite (general cognitive), memory and motor.
This questionnaire is a later, slightly modified version of the original physical exam questionnaire.
