The PDMS-2 is an early childhood motor development program that provides in-depth assessment and training or remediation of gross and fine motor skills.

Measures the interrelated motor abilities that develop early in life

  • The six PDMS-2 subtests include Reflexes, Stationary, Locomotion, Object Manipulation, Grasping, and Visual-Motor Integration.
  • Can be used to estimate a child’s motor competence relative to his or her peers; compare a child’s gross motor development with his or her fine motor development to determine whether disparate abilities are present; identify skill deficits and help develop individualized goals and objectives; evaluate a child’s progress; or research the nature of motor development in various populations of children, the role of motor ability in academic success, and the effectiveness of various motor interventions.
  • The instruction/treatment component of the PDMS-2, the Peabody Motor Activities Program (P-MAP), contains units organized developmentally by skill area.
  • The Peabody Motor Development Chart is a convenient reference for the motor skills measured by the PDMS-2 and the ages at which 50% of the normative sample was able to perform the skill.
