Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today. We had 6:00 – 7:00 pm session only. The afternoon session we did have as our fellows from Malayasia, Hongkong have had their exams and are now waiting for the results.

The RRR were:

  • Stages of play
  • GMFCS scale
  • Investigations in Moderate / Severe global developmental delay

The Development station scenario was of parental concern regarding a 3.5 year old. Task was to assess developmental age. Dr A had agreed to be the role player / examiner giving the cues. Dr Ab was in the hot seat. There is a lot to learn in verbalising the developmental exam.

The Learning points are:

  • Structure the exam carefully
  • Technique needs to be fluent
  • Start with General observation of the ‘room.
  • Choose toys and present with One tool at a time.
  • Mention clearly you are REMOVING the tool before offering next
  • Change tools if child reluctant to interact. Come back again if time permits.
  • Use mother to ‘ask child’ to complete a particular task.

Please visit to add your comments or add points I have missed.
