The Assessment of Preterm Infants' Behavior (APIB) [Als et al., a, b] is a widely used behavioral tool specifically designed to document the spectrum of full-term as well as preterm newborn infants' neurobehavioral presents the infant with increasingly demanding environmental inputs in a graded sequence of distal and proximal stimuli. Motor Assessment of the Developing Infant, 1st Edition Authors: Martha Piper & Johanna Darrah Presents theories of infant motor development and discusses the unique challenges involved in the assessment of the motor skills of developing infants as compared to that of adults.
