The development of a tongue assessment tool to assist with tongue-tie identification.

Ingram J, Johnson D, Copeland M, Churchill C, Taylor H, Emond A - Arch. Dis. Child. Fetal Neonatal Ed. (2015)

Bottom Line: There was acceptable internal reliability for the four-item BTAT (Cronbach's α=0.708) and the eight midwives who used it showed good correlation in the consistency of its use (ICC=0.760).Midwives found it quick and easy to use and felt that it would be easy to teach to others.The BTAT provides an objective, clear and simple measure of the severity of a tongue-tie, to inform selection of infants for frenotomy and to monitor the effect of the procedure.
