With physical activity levels decreasing and developmental disabilities increasing, it is important that therapists and teachers understand how to screen children for developmental difficulties. Children who are identified as needing more input during this screening process can then be encouraged to exercise in a safe and meaningful way. This course, the second in a series on the physical, cognitive and psychosocial development in early and middle childhood, explores some key assessment and intervention ideas for children aged three to seven years.


The aim of this course is to provide you with appropriate assessment tools for children aged three to seven years and to discuss ways to safely implement a physical activity programme for children.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz
