Correlations between the Clinical Adaptive Test/Clinical Lingulstic Auditory Milestone Scale (CAT/CLAMS) and the bayley Scales of Infant Development-Mental Scale (BSID) were examined in 61 infants and toddlers with suspected developmental delay. Highly significant correlations were found between the two instruments. Gender, race, and gestational age did not influence the relationshipo between CAT/CLAMS and BSID scores. The CAT/CLAMS was both sensitive (88%) and specific (67%) for mental retardation (BSID<70). The CAT/CLAMS correlates with the BSID and can be used as an insutrument for detecting cognitive delay.
