Motor skill assessments are used to evaluate a child’s development and reveal potential deficits of the individual. The purpose of this study was to research and analyze a number of motor assessments for children that have been created over the past 30 years. This information will then be used, in the future, to create a new motor assessment that would be able to be utilized in therapeutic settings. To accumulate the articles to review, the website Rayyan was used. A total number of 14,524 articles were gathered and the screening consisted of assessing abstracts to determine whether an article was included or excluded from the data. Keywords were identified and exclusion reasons were also created to help the decision-making process. For this project, 1,555 articles had been screened; 183 articles were “maybe,” 26 were included and 1,344 were excluded. From the 183 articles that were “maybe,” 52 were decided to be included in the data and 131 were excluded. The following paper describes the results from this specific screening.
