This study evaluated the Specific Test of Early Infant Motor Performance (STEP), a rapid screening test of preterm infants at risk for developmental delay. The STEP administered at term and three months showed excellent reliability, required 6 to 10 minutes to administer, and had significant correlations with the Bayley III at 12 months. Although the STEP needs to be validated in a larger cohort, this new rapid assessment may identify infants at risk for delays early in the first three months of life.
