Movement ABC -2
The Movement ABC -2 has been one of the most popular assessments borrowed from Noah’s Ark this year. The Movement ABC-2 covers the domains of Manual Dexterity, Ball skills and Static and Dynamic Balance over each age group. The assessment comes in a compact case and the eight assessment tasks can be administered with the child in around 30 minutes. The assessment includes a checklist to be given to teachers or parents to screen children’s motor performance in everyday settings. The checklist is divided into two sections each of which considers the child’s performance in progressively more complex situations. Test Record Forms are available for three age groups: Band 1 (3-6 years); Band 2 (7 10 years) and Band 3 (11 -16 years). The checklist is the same for all age groups.
The Movement ABC-2 identifies issues with visual-motor skills, but will also determine any emotional or motivational difficulties the child may be experiencing. Scoring is very easy, percentile cut scores categorise the child’s performance via an easy to use ‘traffic light’ system that indicates whether further action is needed.
