Abbreviated Scale of Psychosocial Development

The Abbreviated Scale of Psychosocial Development is used to evaluate the development of children under 6 years old. This follow up helps detect the well-developed areas, and those that require further development. The Scale has four components:

GROSS MOTOR DEVELOPMENT                                                                                                                                 Gross motor development belongs to the general coordination of movements (arms, body and legs) and to general balance. Work is directed toward the child discovering the possibilities of his or her own body movements and the different postures to maintain balance.

FINE MOTOR DEVELOPMENT                                                                                                                                          Fine motor development belongs to the coordination of fine movements of hands and fingers. Work is directed towards the sufficient precision of the fingers, making the child able to execute writing strokes.

AUDITION AND LANGUAGE                                                                                                                                             Work is aimed to developing a child's capacity to listen, speak and relate with the elements of his or her surroundings. Thus the children will be able in the future to have an improved capacity for speaking, understanding and knowing how to dialogue with their parents and peers.

PERSONAL AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT                                                                                                                       Work is directed toward strengthening a child's ability to relate to others. This is achieved through the participation in daily family activities. Children should be considered part of the family and the social group.
