Screen infants at risk for developmental delay or neurological impairment. Abstract. Objective: To examine the utility of the Bayley Infant Neurodevelopmental Screener (BINS) as a screening technique for premature, low birth weight. Objective To determine predictive validity of the Bayley Infant Neurodevelopmental. Screener (BINS) during the first 2 years of life with a group of children at risk.

All correspondence should be sent to Carol H. Although traditional cut-offs of one and two standard deviations below the mean are often utilized, we included a third category of 1.

Screejer In or Create an Account. Differences in the distributions of scores in the South American sample and the US norming sample were conducted at six benchmark ages 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 months corresponding to the six ages where data were collected for the US standardization 1.

As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of the manuscript. Table 3 reports BINS scores by sex and language. This may be due to the use of more stringent inclusion criteria for healthy children in the South American sample.

Extremely low gestational age may be a biological risk for later cognitive skills. Low and moderate vs.

There were 34 infants who had BINS scores in the moderate risk range. After screening for eligibility based on the criteria described above, the study staff administered the informed consent document, in the appropriate language. Socioeconomic status, poor health in childhood, and human capital development.

The participating countries and number of participants per country are found in Table 1. Robust estimates of the prevalence of development disabilities in less developed countries indant rare.


A total of infants were retested at a mean number of Differences were tested using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test.

As expected for a sample of infants without major health conditions, the BINS scores were high. The Bayley Infant Neurodevelopmental Screener BINS is a developmental screening measure that offers an alternative to detailed assessment for infants 3 to 24 months of age. Infants obtaining a high-moderate risk score on the BINS had fairly even distribution later on their PDI scores, with similar numbers of infants falling at 1, 1. Clinical interpretation and application.

Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. The total number of items failed places the infant in a neuroevelopmental of low, moderate, or high risk for developmental delay. Journal of Pediatric Psychology. Scores below this cut line are considered high moderate scores, indicating that the infant is approaching a high-risk range.

Group differences were evaluated using t-tests. Because of the large number of tests being conducted, an alpha of. Bayley Scales of Infant Development. Therefore, developmental disabilities may have larger adverse effects on future health and socioeconomic outcomes in less developed countries due to abyley higher poverty rates.

Bayley scale of infant development C Nonetheless, the study employs a unique existing network of providers for selecting a large multi-country and geographically, socioeconomically, and demographically diverse sample of children. Identifying the utility of existing instruments that are used in the US to screen infants for risk for developmental problems is needed to expand the capacities of pediatricians and primary care physicians to screen scrsener neurodevelopmental problems in South America.

This diversity provides inference that the sample is representative of large percentages of children in the study countries.

Bayley Infant Neurodevelopmental Screener™ (BINS™)

Using the ogives for groups defined by half months, it was possible to estimate the score distribution for the missing half month and adjust the distribution appropriately. The mother or a primary caregiver of the child had to be with the child at the pediatric visit. The study sites were located in geographically and socioeconomically diverse communities. Bayley Infant Neurodevelopmental Screen.


The developmental course of the low birth weight infant is affected by these many factors. More than a third Typical items in the age ranges under study include reaching for and transferring blocks, looking for fallen items, types of vocalizations, and prewalking progression scooting, stepping movements. All five infants were seen by the physician for a neurodevelopmental examination and were considered to have normal neurologic development.

The study results indicate that the instrument appears to be both feasible and appropriate for neurodevelopmental screening in South America. Please note that during the production process errors may be discovered which could affect the content, and all legal disclaimers that apply to the journal pertain.

The BINS manual is clear in acknowledging the moderate risk range as one requiring clinical judgment in deciding whether to further assess or refer infants obtaining a moderate risk score.

A Screening Form that included questions on the exclusion criteria listed above was developed to screen for the appropriateness of a child to neurodevelopental in this study. If an infant is at the lower sfreener of the age range, failure of items may be more likely than at the upper end of the age range. View large Download slide. At most age levels, female infants performed higher than male, however the difference was only significant for the older age groups 16 to 20 months and 21 to 24 months.
