The temperament of a child is widely acknowledged to be an important factor in their emotional and educational development. The Integrative Child Temperament Inventory (ICTI) is a standardized assessment of child temperament for use in applied settings with children aged 2 to 8 years.

The ICTI is used to assess aspects of temperament in children, measuring child temperament traits for which a broad consensus now exists across theories. The assessment covers the following core dimensions of temperament; the individual scales are combined to form a temperament profile:
The ICTI is available online and the report includes a graphical profile and narrative to assist in conversations with parents or caregivers and provides a basis for any interventions. When a child is being tested in the context of an individual clinical assessment, a temperament profile should not be considered in isolation, but take into account the upbringing of the child as well as current and previous diagnostic statuses.
