Abstract

Measures of infant attention may be more indicative of cognitive status than scores from standardized developmental tests. The purpose of this study of 56 full-term infants was to determine whether measures of attention taken from the Brazelton Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scales (NBAS) at 2 days and the Bayley Infant Behavior Record (IBR) at 2 months would be internally consistent and would be related to developmental status at 2 months. Attention measures were internally consistent. The IBR measure was significantly related to 2-month developmental status; the NBAS measure was not. Results support attention as an important focus for nursing assessment of development.
