Mithlesh Dewangan, Prateek Sharma

Abstract


Background: To compare of DDST II and TDSC in the age group of 0-3 years and to assess developmental delay at various age groups using TDSC.

Methods: 400 children were tested in their performance in the two tests since birth till 3 year of and their results were compared.

Results: TDSC has sensitivity of 66.66% and specificity of 98.93% in screening for developmental delays. Positive predictive value for TDSC came out to be 100.00% and Negative predictive value for TDSC came out to be 97.20 %. Prevalence rate of developmental delay was 11.25%.

Conclusions: Denver II test was concluded to be more sensitive test and TDSC as a more specific test.
