Vietze, Peter M.; Coates, Deborah
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v6 n3 p72-85 Fall 1986
Seven techniques for measuring information processing in infants are proposed to aid in the early identification of mental retardation. The techniques are based on conditioning, attentional, and manual exploration paradigms and could be combined into an assessment battery more valid than current infant IQ tests in predicting later disability.
