Atypical Maternal Behavior Instrument for Assessment and Classification (AMBIANCE) Scale - response of Disrupted Communication

Videotaped interactions between mother and infant when babies were 4 months old were coded on a 7 point scale, ranging from 1 (high normal) to 7 (disrupted communication with few or no ameliorating behaviors) Videotape
