BOT-2 - Including the bilateral coordination, balance, running speed/agility, and strength portions with the older, higher functioning children.
For over 25 years, professionals have relied on the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency as a premier instrument for measuring gross and fine motor skills. The second edition of this trusted test offers substantial improvements that help make testing easier and more efficient. BOT-2 features new test items and activities, improved equipment, easier administration, and an expanded age range to 21.
The results: BOT-2 is especially well-suited for physical therapists, occupational therapists, adaptive physical education teachers, special education professionals, and others who need a reliable motor skills assessment.
BOT-2 assesses the motor proficiency of all students, ranging from those who are normally developing to those with moderate motor-skill deficits. It can also be used for developing and evaluating motor training programs.
Peabody-2 PDMS-2 - Including reflexes, stationary, locomotion, and object manipulation portions of the exam for younger or lower functioning children.
The PDMS-2 is an early childhood motor development program that provides (in one package) both in-depth assessment and training or remediation of gross and fine motor skills. The assessment is composed of six subtests that measure interrelated motor abilities that develop early in life. It is designed to assess the motor skills of children from birth through 5 years of age.
Reliability and validity have been determined empirically. The normative sample consisted of 2,003 persons residing in 46 states. The PDMS-2 can be used by occupational therapists, physical therapists, diagnosticians, early intervention specialists, adapted physical education teachers, psychologists, and others who are interested in examining the motor abilities of young children.
We also check range of motion, tone/spasticity of muscles, and perform manual muscle tests.
