The Peruvian psychomotor development test is an instrument for the
evaluation of child development from 0 months to 30 months; this test
evaluates postural - motor behavior, visual-motor behavior, language
behavior, social behavior and intelligence.
The general objective of this instrument is evaluate the profile of child
development, under prescribed conditions and the specific objective is
evaluate the behavior by direct observation during the performance of
milestones. It should be noted that prevents ambiguity in the answers. The
information required from the mother is very simple (answer: true or false).
In the horizontal line of instrument are located evaluation ages; on the
vertical line are described the behavioral lines : Control of the head and
sitting trunk (A), control head and trunk rotations (B) Control gear head and
trunk (C), using the arm and hand (D), Vision (E) Hearing ( F),
Comprehensive Language (G), expressive language (H), social behavior (I),
Food and hygiene dress (J) Game (K), Intelligence and Learning (L).

The landmarks located in the age coordinate and line and behavior line , the
blanks are equivalent to the immediately preceding milestone.

deviation to the left of one landmark associated with a risk factor. left deviation of two months or more on two or more landmarks. the marks of each one of the milestones achieved will be joined by a line which depart from chronological age (which is circled) until the last mark. means that the immediately preceding milestone is still developing during the stretch of these spaces and can be marked as correct in the chronological month in which the child is being evaluated. It is classified as developmental disorder If the line of development is diverted to the right of the current chronological age. Left deviation of a month in two or more milestones. left deviation of two months or more in a single milestone.When the child does not execute one or more of the behaviors evaluated according to chronological age and the reading corresponding profile is:   Left deviation of a month in one landmark. progress in the development of lines of corresponding behavior.When the girl and the boy executed all behaviors assessed as corresponding to chronological age is classified as Normal Development .RECORD RESULTS: After the assessment. Blanks in scheme. naturally if the implementation of that landmark is successful INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS: . left deviation are considered delayed and and deviations to the right. This continuous line obtained will be the profile of the development of the girl child or evaluated. is classified as advance development .
