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 Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) domain focuses on awareness and engagement in four areas of artistic expression.
The knowledge or skill areas in this domain include visual art, music, drama, and dance.
