The purpose of this study was to investigate the applicability of BSID-II in diagnosing children with developmental delay in Kaohsuing area. Five hundred and forty-four children, all who were patients of Developmental Delay Clinic of Kaohsuing Medical University, participated in this study. The instrument of this study was the Bayley Scales of Infant Development--second edition (BSID-II), the primary value of which was in diagnosing developmental delay and planning intervention strategies. The standardization and statistical properties of BSID-II made it one of the best measures of infant development available. The findings as follows: (1) the alpha coefficients were between .95 and .99, which were higher than data on manual of BSID-II; (2) the reproducibilities, which were different with each examiner, were between .9503 and .9633, that were good enough to be a developmental scale; (3) Standard Errors of Measurement were between 2.8589 and 3.8206. It was a restricted sample so that these also were lower than the data on manual of BSID-II. This evidence shows BSID-II is a highly reliable instrument of developmental assessment at Kaohsuing area. A special norm for developmentally delayed children and quality control of examiners are suggested.
