Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The Comprehensive Developmental Inventory for Infants and Toddlers (CDIIT) is a new developmental test designed in Taiwan and lacks concurrent validity information. This study investigated the concurrent validity of the CDIIT with the Bayley Scales of Infant Development-II (BSID-II) in preterm infants aged 6-18 and 21-40 months, respectively. METHODS: We recruited 160 preterm infants (84 boys, 76 girls) with a corrected age of 6-18 months and followed them up until 21-40 months of age. One tester administered the CDIIT and BSID-II to all infants. Developmental ages (DAs) and developmental quotients (DQs) from both tests were analyzed with Pearson correlation and kappa tests. RESULTS: Correlation coefficients for DAs and DQs between the 2 cognitive and motor subtests and classification agreements were high at 6-18 months (r = 0.80-0.97; kappa = 0.80, 0.85) and moderate to high at 21-40 months (r = 0.60-0.77; kappa = 0.44, 0.57). DQ classification for the CDIIT motor subtests tended to be higher than for the BSID-II motor scales at 21-40 months. CONCLUSIONS: In preterm infants, concurrent validity between the motor and cognitive subtests of the CDIIT and the BSID-II was acceptable. The CDIIT can be thus used in clinics for the early identification of developmental delay in infants and toddlers.
