SINDA: Standardized Infant NeuroDevelopmental Assessment
Description of SINDA: Standardized Infant NeuroDevelopmental Assessment
Is there a way to accurately predict neurodevelopmental disability within the first year of life? Standardized Infant NeuroDevelopmental Assessment (SINDA) has been developed as a screening instrument for infants aged 6 weeks to 12 months corrected age, to assist early detection of infants at high risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. It is the first developmental instrument to allow a comprehensive (360-degree) approach including “all” dimensions of development. With assessment in less than 10 minutes, SINDA can be used quickly in virtually any environment and requires only simple equipment.
- A truly concise neurodevelopmental assessment tool for infants in the first year.
- Holistic three scale approach: neurological, developmental, and socio-emotional scales.
- Assessment in less than 10 minutes for the neurological scale, which is also reliable and predicts neurodisability well.
- Highly illustrated with figures and over 160 video-clips (available from www.mackeith.co.uk) allowing the application of SINDA without a training course.
