Summary: OMPS is made up of six items: slow movements, rapid forearm rotation, finger-nose touching, prone extension posture, asymmetrical tonic neck reflex (ATNR), and supine flexion posture. These six items will help childhood specialists identify a number of subtle motor coordination problems in children 5 to 15 years old. COMPS has been shown to accurately identify a large percentage of children who have motor problems and offers standardized administration procedures and objective criteria for scoring.
Format: 1 manual (51 p. : ill. ; 28 cm.), 1 CD-ROM (12 cm.), 2 joint measurement tools, 1 COMPS scoring sheet, all in pouch.
