This early childhood motor development program contains six subtests that assess the motor skills of children from birth through 5 years. The new illustrated guide to administering and scoring provides detailed descriptions of each item. The subtests are—Reflexes, Stationary, Locomotion, Object Manipulation, Grasping, and Visual-Motor Integration.

Composite scores available include Gross Motor Quotient, Fine Motor Quotient, and Total Motor Quotient.

The Peabody Motor Activities Program (P–MAP), included in the complete kit, is the instruction/treatment program of the PDMS–2. After a child's motor skills have been assessed and the profile/summary form has been completed, select units from the P–MAP to facilitate the child's development in specific skill areas.
