The following Griffiths Manuals are available:
The Griffiths Mental Developmental Scales from birth – 2 years, 1996 Revision.
GMDS-ER Administration Manual
GDMS-ER Analysis Manual
Testers require access to both an Administration and an Analysis Manual when administering the GMDS-ER Scale.
Users of the 0-2 Year Scales require access to “The Griffiths Mental Developmental Scales from birth – 2 years” when administering the 0-2 year scales.
These new manuals replace the original “Griffiths Manuals,” the Abilities of Babies and the Abilities of Young Children. Testers may find it useful to refer to these original publications for background on the development of the original scales. However, administration instructions for both the 0-2 Scales and 2-8 Scales should be followed through the new manuals.
Two types of Record Forms/Booklets are available:
Record Form for the 0-2 Year Scales only
GMDS-ER Record Book for use when testing children from birth up to 8 years, supplied in packs of ten, with drawing books.
