Sunaina Sharma [2] | Gagandeep Kaur [15]


Abstract: A comparative study was conducted to assess gross motor developmental milestones of children in rural and urban areas. A descriptive comparative research design was used for the study. The sample of 120 school children of age 6-8 years was taken by non-probability purposive sampling technique. Self -structured checklist was used to assess gross motor developmental milestones. The study result showed out of 20 samples for each age group, 50 % had normal gross motor developmental milestones and 50 % had mild delayed developmental milestones in rural area, whereas 65 % had normal gross motor developmental milestone and 35 % children had mild delayed milestones in urban area. In both rural and urban areas 7 years old children (100 %) had normal gross motor developmental milestone. Children of age 8 years 16 (80 %) had normal gross motor developmental milestones and 4 (20 %) children with mild developmental delay in rural area, whereas children 17 (85 %) had normal developmental milestones and 3 (15 %) children with mild developmental delay in urban area. In both rural and urban areas at all age group 0 % children had delayed developmental milestones.
