Neuromotor skills in infants were measured at 1 month of age using the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, 2nd Edition (PDMS-2).
The researchers found that infants of women in the exercise group had higher PDMS-2 scores for four of the five variables compared with infants of usual-activity mothers.
Functional Activities: At evaluation, measurements using the Timed Up and Go (TUG) and Peabody Developmental Motor Scale 2 (PDMS-2) were obtained.
Motor Skills: The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales (PDMS-2) was designed to assess the motor skills of children from birth through 5 years of age.
Of the 87 children with parental consent, all completed the survey and 26 children had the PDMS-2 assessment.
Table 2 shows descriptive characteristics of those who participated in the clinical (PDMS-2) assessments (n = 26).

The PDMS-2 is a movement skill assessment tool that measures gross and fine movement skills.

Due to the potential for initial motor skills differences, the author employed analysis of covariance as a means for controlling for initial group differences on the PDMS-2
. The results revealed that the experimental group significantly outperformed the control group on gross motor skills and locomotion.
Data were collected from the administration of a pretest and posttest to both groups to investigate the effects of a creative movement program on the scores of the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales-Second Edition (PDMS-2
Gross motor skills, object manipulation, stationary skills, and locomotion were assessed using the second edition of the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales (PDMS-2
