Assess quality of movement using this tool
Lucy Jane Miller brings you the NDT- and SI-based assessment you've been waiting for! Now you can evaluate the overall quality of infant and toddler movement rather than isolated skills.
Use this diagnostic assessment to measure changes in children, birth to 3 1/2 years old, who have atypical motor development. Obtain standard scores on five subtests and track change over time using individual growth scores.
Test with confidence using this nationally standardized assessment. You'll have reliable and valid scores based on six years of comprehensive research.
Consider the validity of parent-elicited play and naturalistic sequences of movement. The manual describes each movement pattern and is enhanced by illustrations by Carole Knott, OTR, PT. Evaluate—
- Relationship of motor ability to functional performance
- Specific components of movement patterns in each position
- Transitions within and between movement positions
Administer in 15 to 45 minutes. Observe the child's sequences of movement, then accurately score movement patterns on the illustrated record form. Elicit information from the caregiver to determine the relationships between the child's motor performance and functional level.
Assess small increments of motor development using eight comprehensive subtests. Subtests include mobility, stability, motor organization, functional performance, and social-emotional abilities.
