The Schedule of Growing Skills II provides a reliable ‘snapshot’ of a child’s developmental level, including areas of strength and potential delay. It examines nine key areas based on the developmental sequences designed by Dr Mary Sheridan:
The Record Form contains 179 items listed in developmental order for each of the following skill areas: passive postural skills; active postural skills; manipulative skills; visual skills; hearing and language skills; speech and language skills; interactive social skills; self-care social skills.
Each record form allows for up to four assessments of any one child, providing a clear indication of progress over time. For those that require further assessment, subsequent record forms can be utilised. A simple scoring system highlights developmental areas where children might potentially have a delay, indicating where referral might be necessary.
