Using Information Processing Strategies for Early Identification of Mental Retardation
Traditional infant intelligence tests have been notoriously poor in being able to predict intellectual functioning in later childhood. Over the past 25 years, infant behavior researchers have developed or adapted behavioral techniques that measure information processing capacities of infants. These include conditioning procedures, visual attention paradigms, and methods for assessing infant exploratory behavior. Seven techniques for measuring information processing in infants are described and discussed. An outline for an assessment battery based on these techniques is presented and discussed.
