This early childhood motor development program contains six subtests that assess the motor skills of children from birth through 5 years.The new illustrated guide to administering and scoring provides detailed descriptions of each item. The subtests are—Reflexes, Stationary, Locomotion, Object Manipulation, Grasping, and Visual-Motor Integration.
Composite scores available include Gross Motor Quotient, Fine Motor Quotient, and Total Motor Quotient. The test contains new normative data representative of the current U.S. population.
The Peabody Motor Activities Program (P–MAP), included in the complete kit, is the instruction/treatment program of the PDMS–2. After a child's motor skills have been assessed and the profile/summary form has been completed, select units from the P–MAP to facilitate the child's development in specific skill areas.
