Purpose: Measure mastery of developmental milestones across five global domains
Age: Birth – 7.11 years
Time: 5 to 10 minutes per subtest
As children age, they typically attain critical skills and behaviors sequentially, from simple to complex. Assessment of developmental strengths and needs during this time is critical for early development centers, private clinicians, schools, and others seeking to determine the need for educational resources or interventions and build plans accordingly.
The Battelle® Developmental Inventory, Third Edition™ (BDI-3™) measures mastery of developmental milestones in the following global domains:
The BDI-3™Screening Test is used to quickly screen and evaluate early childhood developmental milestones to help identify children that are at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. The BDI-3 Screening Test consists of a subset of test items from each domain found in the BDI-3 Developmental item bank. The scoring procedures are similar to those of the full BDI-3 and aid in identifying children who may need additional testing.
The BDI-3 Developmental Screening Record Form (pkg 25) includes 25 hard-copy record forms, for hand-scoring only.
