The Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS)
is a developmental criterion-referenced assessment tool for a variety of functional and educational uses, including child assessment, evaluation, student academic placement, Individual Educational Plans (IEP’s), Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP’s), instructional planning, and to determine eligibility for early intervention and pre-school programs. Our on-line course will assist you and help ‘fast-track’ your learning curve
, so that you will more easily learn about this valuable instrument and how best to apply it to the children under your care. Similar to a Monarch or Cliff notes-type review, our online course provides the essential information in a condensed and more easily digestible format. This course is a review and training module for the Alberta Infant Motor Scale. It meets annual State Early Intervention requirements for continuing education hours in assessment and evaluation.
The AIMS measures gross motor maturation in infants from birth through independent walking (18 months of age). Fifty-eight items related to posture, movement, and weight bearing in prone, supine, sitting, and standing positions take 10 to 20 minutes to observe. In addition, there is high concurrent validity with the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales' gross motor portion.
makes it easy for educators to assess, over the course of 20-30 minutes, infants, toddlers, and children functioning below the 18 months of age. In addition, the AIMS helps:
- Diagnose delays, disabilities, giftedness and other exceptionalities
- Determine present level of performance
- Write IFSP’s & IEP’s and monitor progress
- Yields percentile ranks
- Support alternate assessment needs
