Abstract

Motor outcome measures may be used in both research and clinical practice. Although many motor outcome measures exist, only a small subset are suitable for use in children, and an even smaller subset is suitable for use in children under the age of 5 years who are undergoing rapid motor development. In this article, the issues involved in choosing an outcome measure are reviewed, and four of the most common gross motor outcomes measures used in young children are discussed.
