The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales- 2 (PDMS-2) is recognised as the first nationally standardised assessment tool to provide separate gross and fine motor scores for children between the ages of birth to 71 months old. The application of the PDMS-2 helps to estimate a child’s motor competence relative to his or her peers. It can identify delays or disorders in the child’s development and it also makes use of specific skill deficits to develop individualised goals in the treatment of children with developmental delays. In this course, Atara Taragin discusses the administration and scoring of the gross motor function section of the PDMS-2.
