Comparison of Contemporary and Original Norms of the Alberta Infant Motor Scale

London Central S.S.

The Alberta Infant Motor Scale is a measure of infant motor abilities developed 18 years ago in Canada. Due to “Back to Sleep” campaigns and ethnic diversity, the order and age of acquisition of AIMS rolling items may have changed. 465 infants recruited across Canada were assessed. It was found that the order and age of emergence of the rolling items still remains the same.
