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.

As mentioned above, most differences baylry sex were statistically insignificant. This limits the ability of sreener care practitioners in less developed counties to carry out systematic screening procedures and to refer children for available remediation programs even when the costs of such screening are minimal. These physicians also routinely care for infants and children who are healthy as well as infants with a range of health conditions in their general pediatric practices.

We looked at positive predictive value comparing and contrasting the different categories of performance on both tests. Based on review of test reports commenting on performance for each infant in the areas of gross motor skills, fine motor skills, language skills, problem-solving skills and behavior, neurodevelopmrntal reasons for poor scores on the MDI fell into three patterns: Examining the differences showed that at three months, infants in the South American sample outscored infants in the US sample, whereas at six months the relationship was reversed.

The utility of developmental screening measures is affected by many factors: Bayley Scales of Infant Development.

The content bayly perhaps less bayleg by language and cultural factors than would other screening instruments that have more complex tasks or reliance on verbal factors.

Neurodevelopmentao assessments such as the BSID-II Scales require 45 minutes to an hour to administer and require an advanced level of training and expertise in administration. Future studies that include random and population-based samples of infants, although difficult to obtain, would be helpful to better evaluate the generalizability of the results to the population of infants in the study countries.


Social Science and Medicine. For each item, performance differences based on language, sex, and the interaction of sex and language were tested.

N indicates the number of children in each neurodevelipmental. The BINS was validated on a high-risk infant population as well as normal infants in test construction.

In conclusion, the BINS is a useful instrument for neurodevelopmental screening in South America, with no apparent systematic biases or feasibility limitations. Serial evaluations may reveal a pattern of change related to biological risk, similar to those observed by Liaw and Brooks-Gunn in low birth weight infants.

By definition a screening test casts a wide net to select those children who may need closer monitoring. This study examined the predictive value of using the BINS at a typical 6-month adjusted age examination of low birth weight infants to screen for emerging disabilities, as a lower cost measure than administering a full Bayley assessment at 6 months, and as able to be incorporated in the physician’s examination of the infant.

Female infants performed higher than male at 16 to 20 months and 21 to 24 months; male infant scores were more variable at 5 to 6 months.

Medical risk factors such as significant intracranial hemorrhage, periventricular leukomalacia, and maternal substance abuse in the high risk infant’s medical history may place him or her at risk for development.

An important question is whether instruments standardized in the US are useful and applicable in less developed countries. Consideration of the efficacy of any screening measure depends on the base rate in the population being screened. The BINS is a satisfactory screening tool for low birth weight infants neurodevlopmental used in conjunction with other known biologic and social risk factors.

Scores below this cut line are considered high moderate scores, indicating that the infant is approaching a high-risk range.

In addition, chi-square tests were used to compare the distributions of the risk scteener low, moderate, and high between the two samples. These three infants showed a similar pattern of failed items on the BINS, failing items primarily in the Expressive and Cognitive categories.
