  • PEDS:DM is a 6-8 items per visit focused on children’s skills in each developmental domain: fine motor, gross motor, expressive language, receptive language, self-help, social-emotional, and for older children preschool and school skills. The questions take about 5 minutes to complete and 1 minute to score.
  • Designed for children at any age from birth until age 8, the measure consists of a laminated book of questions upon which parents mark answers with a dry erase marker. Marks are wiped off in preparation for re-use with the next family. To score, a single template is placed over the completed page to reveal each milestone not met.
  • Replaces informal milestones checklists (known to miss 70% of children with problems) with proven, validated, and accurate items.
  • Includes a developmental promotion component by encouraging parents, once they’ve completed the questions, to read a short story to their children about age-appropriate parent-child interactions. Online applications are coming soon.
  • The PEDS:DM Recording Form is used to record answers and can be reused with each child to produce a graph of progress over time.
  • The PEDS:DM manual contains information on parenting, billing and coding, and directions for using the PEDS:DM alone, in combination with PEDS, or with screens of parent-child interactions, psychosocial risk, resilience, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders, along with parent information handouts, case examples, and training guides.
  • For NICU follow-up and early childhood settings, the assessment level version of the PEDS:DM presents more items at once and produces age-equivalent scores.
