Bayley 4 Clinical Use and Interpretation provides clinicians with a guide to use, administration, scoring and interpretation of the Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development, Fourth Edition. The Bayley-4 contains notable new features that set it apart from its predecessor. This book shows clinicians how to interpret the results from the Bayley-4 and how to integrate those results within diagnostic assessment and intervention planning. Case studies illustrating typical and atypical cognitive, language, motor, social-emotional and adaptive behavior are presented.
The book begins with an overview of the Bayley-4, describing its use as an instrument to detect developmental delay in infants and toddlers. The introduction includes a comparison of features and changes from the previous edition and added features in the Bayley-4. Recommendations to aid in the efficiency of administration are included. Separate chapters discuss the clinical use and interpretation of the separate scales on cognitive, language, motor, social-emotional and adaptive behavior development. Within each chapter, the content of the scale is discussed, it's administration, and scoring, the interpretation of that scoring and its use with clinical populations, and case studies are included.
