Denver Developmental Screening Test-II (DDST-II)

Number of children whose scores indicated abnormal development on the DDST-II. DDST-II is designed to measure developmental skill attainment for children from birth to age 6. DDST-II provides overall ratings of normal, borderline, or abnormal development, with abnormal defined as having two or more areas considered borderline or abnormal. Parent/caregiver report

Interrater reliability = 90%; test-retest reliability = 0.75;
