CThis easy-to-administer tool consists of two tests on separate "streams" of development: visual-motor functioning and expressive and receptive language development. These tests help pinpoint any instances of delay (a slower rate of milestone acquisition), deviancy (any unusual development within a specific stream), and dissociation (an uneven rate of milestone acquisition). Fast and easy to complete, The Capute Scales require minimal equipment and can be administered in just 6 to 20 minutes. Because the tests measure functioning across two streams of development, The Capute Scales help clinicians distinguish between global developmental delays and specific areas of concern.
