The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales - Second Edition (PDMS-2) is an early childhood motor development program that provides both in-depth assessment and training or remediation of gross and fine motor skills.
The assessment is composed of six subtests that measure interrelated motor abilities that develop early in life, and is designed to assess the motor skills of children from birth through 5 years of age.
The PDMS-2 Motor Activities Program (P-MAP) is the instruction/treatment program for the PDMS-2. It contains units organised developmentally by skill area.
After a child's motor skills have been assessed and the examiner has completed all sections of the Profile/ Summary Form, the examiner selects units from the P-MAP to use to facilitate the child's development in specific skill areas.
