Does Assessment of Cognitive Functioning in Infancy Hold the Key to Early Detection of Developmental Disabilities? A Review of Research.
Rolfe, Sharne A.
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v19 n1 p61-72 1994
This paper reviews, first, experimental studies of perceptual-cognitive development and related work directed to the assessment of infant intelligence and, second, naturalistic observation of the exploratory patterns of infants during free play. Techniques used, such as the Fagan Test of Infant Intelligence, offer the potential to identify specific processing deficiencies during infancy. (Author/JDD)
