 Bayley Scales of Infant Development Second Edition (BSID-n) is the most widely used tool for assessing infant development. However, it has not been standardized in Japan and there are few reports on its use. In this study, we administered BSID-II to 192 Japanese infants and studied its appropriateness based on results of Japanese Denver Developmental Screening Test (JDDST).

 The mean scores of Mental Developmental Index (MDI) and Psychomotor Developmental Index (PDI) were about 10 points lower than the standardized score. As for the BSID-II Mental Scale and Motor Scale, appropriateness was confirmed from both sensitivity and specificity being high among relevant areas of JDDST. However, the BSID-II Motor Scale appears to judge the Japanese infant to be excessively delayed.
