Summary: The latest revision of the 1931 Merrill-Palmer Scales, the Merrill-Palmer-R retains the types of engaging hands-on activities that hold the interest of even the youngest subjects. Innovative, toy-based activities assess visual-motor, learning and problem solving using choke-safe, colorful materials. In the tradition of the Leiter-R, Stoelting has completely updated, revised and expanded the well-known and well-respected Merrill-Palmer Scales of Development. The Merrill-Palmer-R follows the natural progression of activities for children from 1 month to 6-1/2 years, and is especially useful in assessing children born pre-term (premature). Meets the needs of infant and early childhood assessment, required by federal legislation and most states for early identification of developmental delays and learning difficulties. Measures cognitive, language/communication, motor, social-emotional, and self-help/adaptive behavior.
