Bayley 4

This is an accredited intensive introductory two-day workshop on the new Bayley 4, which assesses developmental functioning for infants and young children aged from 1 month to 42 months.

From: Thu 03 Oct 2024

To: Fri 04 Oct 2024

The training is interactive and will introduce course participants to the newly released Bayley 4 and includes both video case studies and ‘live’ demonstrations with a young child. Participants will learn how to administer and score the Cognitive, Language and Motor scales as well as the Social Emotional Scale and the totally revised Adaptive Behaviour Scale. However additional practice in administering the test items will be required after the training in order for examiners to become fully competent Bayley testers.

The course director is Dr Audrienne Sammut

About the course trainer: Dr.Betty Hutchon DSc MRCOT

The workshop will be presented by the UK’s licensed Bayley trainer – Dr Betty Hutchon, Consultant Neurodevelopmental Therapist, University College Hospital, London. 

Betty has worked extensively with the test publishers providing training on the previous edition of the Bayley and subsequently she worked with the US team as a consultant in the revision to produce the Bayley 4 and with Pearson UK on the UK validation study.
