Parent-Infant Interaction Assessment

Dallay, E. G.  & Guedeney, A. (2016)

“Interaction difficulties often represent the first and only indication of difficulties and disorders appearing in the infant. It is therefore of main importance to be able to assess these interactions with appropriate tools. In this chapter, we selectively review a number of specific interactive methods that have been used in developmental and clinical research and that we believe have value for use in clinical settings. Eleven tools are presented in chronological order: NCAST-PCI (Nursing Child Assessment Satellite Training – Parent-Child Interaction Teaching and Feeding Task Scales), CARE-Index, PCERA (Parent-Child Early Relational Assessment), Bobigny Grid, CIB (Coding Interactive Behavior), GRS (Global Rating Scale), PIPE (Parent-Infant Pediatric Examination), IPCI (Indicator of Parent-Child Interaction), KIPS (Keys to Interactive Parenting Scale), PIIOS (Parent-Infant Interaction Observation Scale), and PIRAT (Parent-Infant Relational Assessment Tool).”
