Battelle Developmental Inventory, 2nd Edition, Normative Update Upgrade Kit

Appropriate for all children ages ages birth to 7 years, 11 months, the Battelle Developmental Inventory, Second Edition Normative Update (BDI-2 NU) is an early childhood instrument based on the concepts of developmental milestones. Developing children typically attain critical skills and behaviors sequentially from simple to complex. The BDI-2 NU helps measure a child’s progress along this developmental continuum by both global domains and discrete skill sets.

The BDI-2 NU meets all 5 areas of IDEA (Motor, Adaptive, Cognitive, Personal-Social, and Communication) and is aligned to the three OSEP Early Childhood Outcomes, as well as the Head Start Child Outcomes. It can be used to meet the federal reporting requirements across Part C, Part B/619, and Head Start programs. BDI-2 NU may be used by a team of professionals or by an individual service provider. Accommodations and modifications are available for professionals when assessing infants and children with special needs or disabilities.

A typical complete administration can take between 60 and 90 minutes, while a screening test can be completed in 10 - 30 minutes. Examiners will receive PR, SS, AE, T scores, Change Sensitive Scores, and z scores.

The BDI-2 NU Upgrade Kit includes:

- The new BDI-2 NU Examiner’s Manual, which contains updated norming tables, studies and a Spanish User’s Guide
- Package of 15 BDI-2 NU Paper Test Record Forms

Please note: This kit does not contain the manipulatives needed for administration. First time BDI-2 NU purchasers should not select this kit.
