KIDS (2015) is made up of eleven domains. The focus of each domain is on the acquisition of knowledge, skills, or behaviors that
reflect each domain’s developmental constructs. Because there are multiple measures for each domain, a completed KIDS (2015)
instrument provides enough information to support assessment along a developmental continuum. A child’s learning and development across domains provides the child’s overall learning and developmental profile.
• The Physical Development (PD) and Health (HLTH) domains assess motor development and the development of routines
related to personal care, safety, and nutrition. The PD domain includes the following knowledge or skill areas: Perceptual-motor
skills and movement concepts, gross locomotor movement skills, gross motor manipulative skills, and fine motor manipulative
skills. The HLTH domain includes the following knowledge or skills areas: active physical play, nutrition, safety, personal care
routines, and knowledge of wellness.
