This webinar will describe the assessment of young children across domains to determine if their development is consistent with age expectations.

Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

Typical preschool-age children dress themselves, brush their teeth, use the toilet, and wash their hands. They run, climb, hop, kick, bounce a ball, and ride a tricycle. They manipulate blocks and books and they use crayons and pencils to write and draw. They interact appropriately with adults and peers, and they understand and use language. Many of these behaviors require gross and/or fine motor skills. So, how does a delay in motor development impact performance of these everyday behaviors? And what can we do to facilitate the child’s development? This one-hour webinar will describe the assessment of young children across domains to determine if their development is consistent with age expectations. The presenter will use assessment data (1) to show how impairment in one domain impacts functioning in other developmental areas, and (2) to identify objectives for early intervention.
