Purpose: To identify the efficacy of the Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development, Third Edition (BSID-III), Screening Test–Gross Motor Subtest (GMS) in identifying infants who are accepted for early intervention services.

Methods: This retrospective study included 93 infants with a neonatal intensive care experience who participated in a 6-month developmental assessment follow-up visit. All infants were examined using the BSID-III Screening Test–GMS and the Alberta Infant Motor Scale. A binary logical regression analysis was used to determine the best predictors of acceptance status in this sample.

Results: The BSID-III Screening Test–GMS accounted for a significant portion of the variance in acceptance status.

Conclusion: The results suggest that the BSID-III Screening Test–GMS has great applicability for transdisciplinary/interdisciplinary teams as it effectively identified children who were eligible for early intervention.
