Ghent Developmental Balance Test Alexandra De Kegel & Hilde Van Waelvelde

Balance is a fundamental component of movement, involving the ability to recover from instability and to avoid instability, to anticipate balance disturbances. Various developmental motor disorders cause poor balance, resulting in difficulties with postural control and disturbing the development of numerous activities of daily living. To plan interventions for these young children with motor disabilities, a specific measure to evaluate balance is an essential part of the assessment. Most of the standardized developmental motor tests encompass balance tasks. However the isolated balance items can not be interpreted. Therefore, we aim to develop a new assessment tool to evaluate balance from independent walking to 5 years of age. The Ghent Developmental Balance Test aims at offering a complete developmental series of tasks, reflecting specifically the development of the child’s balance abilities. This test is fit for typically developing children between 18 months and 5 years 11 months or for children with a similar level of balance control.
