Cross-Cultural Adaptation of a Developmental Assessment for Arabic-Speaking Children with Visual Impairment

International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v3 n4 p256-266 2015
Developmental screening has become an established component of child health programs in many developed countries. The research objective of this project was to translate and adapt a developmental assessment (Oregon Project Skills Inventory) for use with young children with visual impairments who speak Arabic. The study was prompted by the lack of developmental screening tools in Arabic and to determine whether young children with visual impairments in Qatar were meeting developmental milestones within normal limits. This project has the potential to make significant contributions to the field of cross-cultural assessment.
