The authors demonstrate a test of visual cognitive abilities (Fagan Test of Infant Intelligence) in the assessment and management of a ventilator-dependent infant with quadriplegia. Assessment of visual recognition memory indicated that the infant's cognitive development progressed normally, despite severe physical limitations and a prolonged stay in hospital. The results suggested that the infant would benefit from age-appropriate auditory, visual and social stimulation and a specialized program of rehabilitation. The test may be particularly useful in assessing the intellectual abilities of infants whose motor dysfunction precludes effective response to traditional tests of sensorimotor intelligence.
