Daily Activities of Infants Scale (DAIS)
Doreen Bartlett and Jamie Kneale Fanning
The Daily Activities of Infants Scale (DAIS) is designed to measure the variation in opportunities that parents provide their infants in terms of the development of antigravity postural control and movement exploration over a 24-hour period, through their daily activities. Psychometric testing has been completed on the DAIS and it has been found to be a reliable and valid parent-completed measure.
