Capute Scales Manual free pdf Created for use in clinical settings, The Capute Scales are effective both as a screener for general practitioners and as an assessment tool for specialists such as developmental pediatricians, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists. With its high correlation with the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, this standardized instrument will assist clinicians in making developmental diagnoses, counseling families, and guiding them to appropriate intervention services. The Capute Scales Manual includes an explanation of the scales' development, guidelines on administration and scoring, an overview of clinical and research use, and information on standardization of the scales and their use in other languages. Available in other languages: Spanish and Russian translations are included in the manual, and work on other translations is ongoing. This manual is part of The Capute Scales, a norm-referenced, 100-item screening and assessment tool that helps experienced practitioners identify developmental delays in children from 1u36 months of age. Developed by Arnold J. Capute, the founding father of neurodevelopmental pediatrics, this reliable, easy-to-administer tool was tested and refined at the Kennedy Krieger Institute for more than 30 years.
