B. Methods Used
INTERVIEW- this is an approach in gathering information from the person involved in the growth and development of the child. This method was done by asking the parent the facts and information about the childs abilities and skills. This method also helped the group to gather data on the profile of the client and family background.

MMDST tool - the bars that intersect her age are the items give by the administrators and being performed by the client. OBSERVATION - this method was used when the group allowed this child to perform the different task to be able to determine what she can do at her age. This s considered as the most important tool since most of the item requires careful observation of the clients behaviour. This method was also used to study the surroundings of the childs environment.

RECORDING AND DOCUMENTAION - this method was to record and document all gathered information. PHYSICAL EXAMINATION - I used different methods in conducting physical assessment to identify our clients development, if the client is growing according to his age development. Our client was able to do the entire test without any difficulties.

C. Test Materials
Clear small glass with 5/8 inch opening Cheese curls Small Rubber Ball with 12.5 inches in diameter Pencil and Bond Paper 8pcs of 1 inch blocks

D. Test Procedures

The toddler may sit on the lap of her mother/ caretaker. Set test materials on the table. Put mother or caregiver at ease and establish rapport stating that the tester is interested in knowing what toddler can do in a certain age. Every effort is made to see what a toddler can actually do rather than asking the parent. Generally the test starts with personal sector: this gives the toddler a chance to get used to the tester. The fine motor adaptive follows: toddler can perform the task at hand without having the talk to the tester directly at yet. The language sector comes next: toddler will be more comfortable with the task and much more likely imitates speech sound and noises that the tester asks to imitate. The gross motor comes, the toddler is allowed three trials to perform each item before a failure is scored Items may be scored either of 4 ways of scoring. P- PASS F- FAIL R- REFUSED NO -No opportunity (not considered in the total score)

Criteria in Interpreting the Scores

1. Two or more sector with two or more delays.
2. One sector with two or more delay or more sectors with one delay and in that same sectors no passes intersecting age line.


3. One sectors with two or more delays

4. One or more sector with one delay and in that same sector no passes intersecting age line.


5. When refusal occurs in number large enough to cause test

result to be questionable or abnormal these were scored as failures.


G. Calculation of Toddlers Age

To get the chronological age of a toddler, subtract the birth date of the client from the date of administration.

Chapter V
A. Summary
The study aims to determine the developmental status of a toddler. The chosen client was Kristine Hermosa (not her real name), 1 year, 11 months and 1 day old. From Km. 10 Emerald St. Doa Salud Subd., Sasa Davao City an assessment was done to the client and his family to determine the factors that contributes to the growth and developmental status of the child. This will help you to determine if the child development is within his normal age. And taking particular of the childs ability to do whatever was required for him and evaluated accordingly.

During the test, the client was a little bit shy but still cooperates with the test. After a while the shame was replace with a very energetic and noisy child. The child passed the entire task that belongs in his age line. The child obtained to pass the item intersecting of his age line, with the score of passed item of 15 out of 15 items intersecting age line. The test results reveals the interpretation that the growth and developmental status of the chills is at the normal level, in all the four sectors of the test personal-social, fine motor adaptive, language and gross motor.

I therefore concluded that my client is developing properly within his age. Because she was able to do the entire test properly without any problems. In the personal social skills the task of the client is to put on clothing, know how to remove garments and use spoon but with the consideration if it spills a little. In finemotor skills the task are to make a tower of 4 cubes, dumps cheese curls from bottle spontaneously and demonstrate it. She was able to do all of these without any help from others.

Part of the developmental growth of the child is the language skills that may help the client in communicating to others, especially soon when she will be attending in school. The tasks is to spoke 3 words other than mama and papa, combines two words, points to 1 named body parts, names one picture and follows direction. The client passed these tasks and she properly done the task without asking any help from his mother. Knowing words that she talks can help the client so that he can properly understand and explain words within his capacity and knowledge. The gross motor skills use group of muscles in doing tasks. In this test the client is using his whole body to perform the task like kicking the ball forward, throwing the ball overhead, balancing on 1 foot and jumping in place.

C. Recommendation
To The Client
she should stop eating candy. she should avoid eating junk foods; and replace it with good and nutritious foods that are necessary for health.

To the Family
The family should continue in supporting the child mentally emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually so that the child will attain the optimum level of functioning. To community: The parents should teach their children in proper hygiene, and not to throw their garbage anywhere to provide clean environment in order to have a healthy lifestyle. The elders of the community must be aware for any problem that is present to their community. hey should be united for easy promotion of health that could lead to healthy community.

To The Student
They should be more knowledgeable in conducting the interview; establishing trust is needed. They should continue to conduct studies regarding the growth and development. They must give appropriate health teaching to the people in the community. Be a role model to the people in the community especially to the client.
