The INTERGROWTH-21st Neurodevelopment Package (c) University of Oxford is a multi-dimensional assessment of early child development designed for use across international populations. The Package can be administered in 35 - 45 minutes to a high degree of reliability by non-specialists in population-based settings. It was developed for use in the 22-26 month age group, but incorporates items from 18 to 36 months. It has been validated against the Bayley Scales of Infant Development III edition.
The INTERGROWTH-21st Neurodevelopment Package measures:
(1) Visual acuity and contrast sensitivity
(2) Cortical auditory processing
(3) Cognition, language, motor skills, behaviour, attention and social-emotional reactivity (INTER-NDA)
(4) Sleep, circadian rhythm and daytime physical activity
