Worldwide, almost one third of the 3 million children who survive sepsis will have delayed development, yet screening for these deficits continues to be a challenge in LMICs. Currently there are no culturally appropriate, easy-to-use neurodevelopmental (ND) screening tools available for front line healthcare workers.

To address this challenge, we have developed OptiDev, a new, culturally appropriate, simple to administer digital tool for screening neurodevelopment in children 0-5 years of age.
