EVALUATIONS

By making use of one of the nine specially designed assessment batteries we are able to determine where a child falls on the motor development spectrum.  Both the parent and teacher receive a comprehensive report on the child's performance. The evaluation allows us to identify children with possible movement difficulties. The child can be reevaluated after six months to determine if there has been any improvement in his or her motor performance.

  1. PDMS - The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales                                                                   The Peabody consists of six subtests that is used to evaluate motor skills in die early years of child motor development. This test battery is used for the evaluation of gross and fine motor skills of children in the age group from birth to 6 years.
  2. Kindergarden Evaluation                                                                                                             This battery assesses a child's fundamental locomotor skills, static and dynamic balance, coordination skills, body awareness and spatial orientation.
  3. BOT-2 - The Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency.                                                    This test battery assesses the state of a child's gross and fine motor development and can be compared with that of other children of the same age. 
  4. MABC - The Movement Assessment Battery                                                                               This test battery evaluates a child’s motor skills for his/her age with a view to the identification of broad areas that require special attention. The test further indicates whether a child is identified with Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD). 
  5. Beery VMI-6 - The Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration. This test battery assesses the extent to which individuals integrate their visual motor abilities (Hand-eye coordination). This test is made out of three sub-tests which tests the following:                                                                                                                                                                                             1.) Visual-motor Integration - The ability to integrate visual-perceptual skills                 with fine motor coordination tasks.                                                                                                  2.) Visual Perception - A learned process and involves acquisition of useful                 information through effective image conversion.                                                                 3.) Motor Coordination - The effective cooperation of body parts to bring about                 smooth exercise.
  6. PYFER - Pyfer Sensory Input Systems Screening Test                                                                With this test battery the intactness of the neurological structures involved in the performance of motor movement is evaluated.
  7. QNST-2 - Quick Neurological Screening Test                                                                             This test battery assesses the intactness of the neurological structures that are involved in the execution of motor movement. The test can also evaluate if ADD/ADHD are present. 
  8. TGMD-2 - Test of Gross Motor Development Evaluation                                                           This test battery assesses the state of a child's gross motor development and can be compared with that of other children his or her chronological age. The test is divided into two separate groups: locomotion and object manipulation. 
  9. FITNESSGRAM                                                                                                                              With this test battery the state of a child’s physical fitness is evaluated and can be categorised in either the Healthy Fitness Zone or the Needs to Improve Zone. Test items include health-related assessments such as cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition.
