Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This study evaluated the psychometric properties of the Specific Test of Early infant motor Performance (STEP) against current validated infant motor assessments. Although this is just a preliminary analysis, the strength of the associations is encouraging and provides proof of concept for future validity studies.
