The purpose of this research is to develop a way to assess infants’ development over telehealth, so that families do not always need to travel to a clinic to get a developmental evaluation. We would like to follow babies over time to see how they develop, and to get ongoing feedback from families about their experience so that we can make sure the method we develop will work for as many families as possible.
