Details of the course content
The Infant Motor Profile (IMP) is a novel video-based instrument to assess the motor development of infants aged 3 to 18 months. Based on video-recordings of spontaneous motor behaviour in supine, prone, sitting, standing, walking and during reaching and grasping. The IMP provides information about the infant's motor repertoire,its abilities to select adaptive motor strategies and about grooss and fine motor achievement. It consists of five domains: movement variation, adaptability, performance, symmetry and fluency. Initial studies have shown good reliability and promising validity.
