SINDA: Standardized Infant NeuroDevelopmental Assessment (ebook)


Is there a way to accurately predict neurodevelopmental disability within the first year of life? Standardized Infant NeuroDevelopmental Assessment (SINDA) has been developed as a screening instrument for infants aged 6 weeks to 12 months corrected age, to assist early detection of infants at high risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. It is the first developmental instrument to allow a comprehensive (360-degree approach) including “all” dimensions of development. It can be used quickly in virtually any environment and requires only simple equipment, so excellent when financial and time considerations are important.

  • First ever concise and standardized neurodevelopmental assessment tool for infants in the first year
  • Holistic three scale approach: neurological, developmental and socio-emotional scales
  • Assessment in less than 10 minutes for the neurological scale which is also reliable and predicts neurodisability well
  • Developmental and socio-emotional scale assist parent counselling and prediction
  • Highly illustrated with figures and over 160 video-clips allowing the application of SINDA without a training course


An essential resource for health professionals working in the field of early detection and early intervention, i.e., paediatricians, developmental paediatricians, neonatologists, child neurologists, paediatric physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech language therapists, psychologists and educationalists.
