Pediatricians often encounter children with delays of motor development. Earlier identification of motor delays allows for timely referral for developmental interventions as well as diagnostic evaluations and treatment planning. The clinical report “Motor Delays: Early Identification and Evaluation” (Pediatrics, June 2013) includes suggestions for formal developmental screening at the 9‐, 18‐, 30‐, and 48‐month well‐child visits; approaches to the neurologic examination, with emphasis on the assessment of muscle tone; and initial diagnostic approaches for medical home providers. Use of diagnostic tests to evaluate children with motor delays is described and the importance of pursuing diagnostic tests while concurrently referring patients to early intervention programs is emphasized.

This will be a fully accessible baseball diamond and integrated playground – the first in Canada!
