As a parent, it is often hard to know whether your child is developing normally, particularly when children develop skills at different rates.
To assist, I have created movement milestone charts for babies, toddlers and children between the ages of 0 and 6 years old. The information in these charts has been derived from the Peabody Developmental Motor Scale – Version 2 (PDMS-2) which is a nationally recognised, standardised developmental assessment tool. These charts reflect the ‘average’ movement skills of children within the specified age-group (50% of children having achieved each skill). The charts should be used as a guide only and should not replace movement assessment by a physiotherapist working in the field of paediatrics.
