The Movement Assessment Battery for Children, Third Edition (Movement ABC-3) provides an objective measurement of gross and fine motor coordination difficulties in children and young adults aged 3 – 25 years.

Movement ABC-3 Benefits:

  • Identify delay or impairment in motor development
  • Plan intervention
  • Measure change and monitor progress over time
  • Widely known and respected for use in research related to motor development
  • Gain a holistic picture of motor performance using the Checklists to complement observational assessment

The Movement ABC-3 updates include:

  • Revised and updated test content and items
  • New manipulatives
  • Extended age range down to 3 and up to 25
  • Co-collected sample between the UK and ANZ
  • Unified contructs across ages

Three Movement ABC-3 subtests:

  • Manual Dexterity
  • Aiming & Catching
  • Balance & Locomotion

Separate Checklists for each age band:

  • Parent/Teacher/Other
  • Self (age band 3 only)

 Test content and structure

The test contains 10 tasks for each of 3 age ranges: 3 – 6 years (3-year-olds complete 7 tasks); 7 – 11 years and 12 – 25 years. The tasks cover the following 3 domains:

  • Manual Dexterity
  • Aiming & Catching (ball skills)
  • Balance & Locomotion

Task, domain and Total Motor scores are provided. A profile of a child’s performance over the different sections of the test can be examined and a ‘traffic light’ system helps map areas of strength and concern.

The assessment is paralleled by an observational approach to perceptual-motor aspects and emotional and motivational difficulties the individual may have in relation to motor tasks.
 

Features

  • Norms based on a sample of 1279 collected jointly in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand
  • Extensive international research built over the previous version of the assessment and this version - featuring in over 500 studies
  • Numerous translations worldwide

 The Movement ABC-3 Checklists

The Movement ABC-3 Checklists provide a means for assessing movement in everyday situations in which the child or young adult participates.

Use the checklist to:

  • Assess groups of students in classroom situations
  • Obtain parents’ or teachers’ views on an individual’s movement in everyday settings
  • Measure the extent to which a young person’s attitudes and feelings about motor tasks are situation specific or more generalised
  • Ascertain the impact of motor difficulties on an individual’s participation in everyday activities
