Exploratory: Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)-Pediatric (infants aged 0 to 30 months)
Short Description of Instrument
The BISQ is a brief screening test for infant and toddler sleep problems.
This is a parent-reported assessment.
Strengths/Weaknesses: The BISQ has been validated by comparing parent report to an actigraph as well as to daily logs. It is sensitive in documenting expected developmental trends in sleep. More studies examining the psychometric properties in SCI are warranted.
