BACKGROUND: Whereas considerable work has been published regarding biological factors associated with infant health, much less is known about the associations of environmental context with infant development - the focus of the present cross-sectional study. METHODS: Data was collected on 561 infants, aged newborn to 18 months. Measures included the Affordances in the Home Environment for Motor Development - Infant Scale, Alberta Infant Motor Scale, and selected bio / medical factors. Correlation and regression were used to analyze the data. RESULTS: Home environmental factors were associated with children's motor development as much as some typically risk biologic factors. CONCLUSION: The home environment partially explained infant development outcomes and infants at risk could possibly be helped with a home assessment for affordances.
