The Milani Comparetti Motor Development Screening Test.
Trembath, Jack; And Others
The manual describes procedures involved in administering and scoring a neurodevelopmental examination of children from birth to 2 years of age. The test is designed to be easily incorporated into routine health programs. The instrument is easily learned, quickly administered, objectively based, and capable of producing early evidence of neuromotor delay or deficits. Drawings are included along with narrative descriptions of tasks to measure reflexes and motor development. A sample chart used for establishing a profile on the children is appended, and scoring is explained to incorporate the child's age in months. Examples of scoring deviant responses are provided. Repeated testing is advised for key periods during the first two years. A sample profile summary and chart with findings and recommendations are among the appendixes. (CL)
