    Abstract

    This research report concerns the adaptation of the dutch version of the Bayley Scales of Infant Development for use with the low vision child. Testing conditions, materials and instructions of this instrument are adapted for children with low vision. Furthermore an observation scale for visual abilities is developed and added to the instrument. Testresults of a group children with low vision will be surveyed. Results suggest that the adapted Bayley Developmental Scales will be a welcome addition to early guidance teams.
