Examining the validity of a digitalised assessment of executive functioning for toddlers: the Babyscreen App.
Cork, Ireland
Poster Presentation
Optional Fields
Due to the difficulties in assessing cognition in young toddlers, we rely on attainment of developmental milestones through standardised developmental assessment. We have developed a touchscreen based assessment tool- (the Babyscreen app)- designed to test the cognitive pre-requisites of working memory, processing speed, visual attention, and hence; executive function in children aged 18-36 months. We wished to examine the internal reliability and validity of the app in comparison to validated measures of executive functioning.
