Coleman, Joyce H.
This Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, the sixth in a series of 16, provides an introductory course in the development of motor skills in children. In the first two sections, the importance and characteristics of motor development are briefly discussed. Maturation factors and predictable patterns and stages in motor development are emphasized. It is emphasized that children vary considerably in their rate of motor development. The sequence of motor development from birth to age 6 is outlined in a chart and elaborated in the text. Gross and fine motor skills checklists as well as guidelines for using the skills checklists are included. This module focuses on specific behaviors that directly relate to CDA Competency 2. (RH)
