This is a two-day workshop on the Bayley III and introducing Bayley 4. The Bayley assesses developmental functioning for infants and young children aged from 1 month to 42 months. The training is interactive and will introduce course participants to the Bayley III and 4 and includes both video case studies and ‘live’ demonstrations with a young child. Participants will learn how to administer and score the Cognitive, Language and Motor scales and will have the opportunity to practice administration in ‘role play’. Administration and scoring of the Social Emotional and Adaptive Behaviour Scales is also included in this training. Additional practice in administering the test items will be required after the training in order for examiners to become fully competent Bayley testers.

About the course trainer: Dr.Betty Hutchon DSc MRCOT

The workshop will be presented by the UK Bayley trainer - Betty Hutchon - Consultant and Neurodevelopmental Therapist, University College Hospital, London and Head of Paediatric Occupational Therapy at Royal Free Hospital, London. Betty has worked extensively with the test publishers providing training on the previous edition of the Bayley and subsequently she worked with the US team as a consultant in the revision to produce the Bayley III. Betty is now also leading the UK study on Bayley 4.

Community and general paediatricians, neonatologists, paediatric trainees, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, researchers and any health professional involved in the detailed developmental assessment of infants and young children, are invited to attend.
