Abstract

The neurodevelopmental examination is a pediatric approach to developmental diagnosis that relies on evaluation of multiple streams of development. The value of the neurodevelopmental examination for the early diagnosis of cerebral palsy and mental retardation was studied by a retrospective analysis of prospectively (longitudinally) collected data. Both conditions were found to be accurately diagnosed in the first year of life. For cerebral palsy, sensitivity was 0.81 and specificity 1.00; for mental retardation, sensitivity was 0.56 and specificity 0.96. The trained pediatrician can make early diagnoses of developmental disabilities.
