The best clinical practice may be to report scores in the moderate risk range as low-moderate risk or high-moderate risk, utilizing the cut score on the record form, and to monitor those infants obtaining high-moderate scores more frequently than those obtaining low-moderate scores. Full assessments such as the BSID-II Scales require 45 minutes to an hour to administer and require an advanced level of training and expertise in administration. The total number of items failed places the infant in a category of low, moderate, or high risk for developmental delay.

Cell chi-square neurkdevelopmental indicate that there were fewer high-risk infants in the South American sample than would be expected had the two distributions been identical. There was no need for adjustment when comparing the other five benchmark ages to the US sample since the age criteria were similar between the two groups.
