Developmental abnl that can be det by developmental eval?
1. Delay=lag in one or more streams of development

Developmental Quotient (DQ)=
(Developmental Age)/
(Chronological Age)

70 <= DQ=85 ==>monitor closely

2. Dissociation=discrepant developmental ages for diff streams of development

Mental Retardation:
motor DQ > > language & prob solving DQ

Cerebral Palsy:
Motor DQ << language & prob solving DQ

nl prob solving
nl motor DQ
delayed lanuage DQ's

3. Deviancy=non-sequential appearance of skill withina single stream of dev

-ex. child w/CP may roll from supine to prone by 2 mos, before achieving prone head control
-these "splinter skills" rarely of use to child
