MACHADO, Flavia Amaral et al. Construction and Validation of the Multidisciplinary Battery for Child Development Screening (TDI). Aval. psicol. [online]. 2022, vol.21, n.2, pp. 150-162. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to present the development of the Multidisciplinary Battery for Child Development Screening (TDI) and its content validity evidence. The TDI construction followed international recommendations, consisting of five stages: description of the theoretical foundation; development of the preliminary version of the instrument; analysis of the items by experts; semantic analysis of the items by the target population; and a pilot study. To support the construction of the items, a literature review was conducted regarding child development in the initial education stage, considering the constructs involved in school readiness. Articles, existing instruments, books and manuals were included. The selected areas were language, executive functions and motor skills. In the preliminary version, 110 items were developed. After completing the last three stages, the final version totaled 81 items, directed toward the assessment of children between 6 and 8 years of age. The TDI presented content validity evidence, being relevant in the Brazilian health and education areas.

Palavras-chave : psychometry; validation studies; children's language; executive functions; motor skills.
