The MACI is a validated system of evaluating general characteristics of caregiver-infant play interaction in normative and at-risk groups for research purposes.

Welcome to the MACI website
The Manchester Assessments of Caregiver-Child Interaction (MACI) encompass an Infant Version (MACI-Infant) and a more recent adapted and slightly extended Toddler Version (MACI-Toddler). These global measures of play interaction between a primary caregiver and their child were developed by Dr Ming Wai Wan and colleagues for use in normative and at-risk groups.
History of MACI
The MACI-Infant was developed in 2008, has been validated, and is currently used internationally in a number research projects. In 2014, the MACI-Toddler was developed for 2- and 3-year-old children to enable further longitudinal measurement. Currently, training is available for MACI-Infant.
