TRANSLATION AND CULTURAL ADAPTATION OF AN INSTRUMENT TO IDENTIFY THE MOTOR PROFILE OF CHILDREN BETWEEN 3 AND 5 YEARS OLD
ABSTRACT For some children, typical daily motor actions become a challenge they cannot overcome properly. To intervene in this context it is necessary identify children with motor difficulties at the earliest age for future intervention. The objective of the present study was to translate and adapt (transcultural) the Early Years Movement Skills Checklist. It was adopted a process suggested in the literature and, as a result, the Lista de Checagem das Habilidades Motoras na Primeira Infância (LCHMPI) was produced. The LCHMPI may help in the identification of motor difficulties, but its results must be carefully analyzed.
