The Movement Assessment of Children (MAC) is an evaluation of functional gross and fine motor control expected in children 2 to 24 months of age. The MAC identifies change in gross and fine motor development in small increments which allow for the precise identification of a child’s motor skills. This precision is useful for identifying delays in a child’s motor development and for measuring changes in the motor control of children with disabilities who are receiving intervention services. A unique feature of the MAC is that most of a child’s abilities can be assessed with observation of movement while interacting with the parent versus the examiner needing to hold the child. The MAC can be completed in 30 minutes or less.
If you are interested in learning more about the MAC and using the MAC in your clinical practice and/or scientific projects please complete a brief survey at MAC Survey.
Once you complete the survey you will receive access to the MAC “BOX”.
In the "BOX" you will find all the materials you need to learn and administer the MAC, including the tool, manual, references, and publications.
If you have questions please contact us at to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you find the MAC to be a useful tool for your clinical practice and/or scientific projects.
