The Merrill-Palmer-R is the revision to the 1931 Merrill-Palmer Scale, and retains the types of engaging hands-on activities that hold the interest of even the youngest child. The Merrill-Palmer-R is innovative, and uses toy based activities to assess visual-motor, learning, and problem-solving skills. Choke-safe and colorful materials are included with the instrument. This revision follows the natural developmental progression of activities for children from birth to age 6.5 years, and is especially useful in assessing children born pre-term.
Provides ‘global’ assessment with separate scores for each IDEA Domain:
3. Motor (fine and gross)
4. Social-Emotional Development
