Samenvatting


Recently, a longitudinal project on the development of children with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD) has started in Belgium and the Netherlands. The main aims of this study are to evaluate the cognitive, motor, communicative and social-emotional abilities of young children with PIMD (between 6 and 48 months old), to analyze the developmental trajectories and patterns in these children, to evaluate the effect of contextual variables on the developmental trajectories and to identify subgroups of children with different developmental patterns or trajectories within the group of children with PIMD. Six-monthly assessments of the child’s cognitive, motor, communicative and social-emotional abilities and of contextual variables are realized by means of test protocols, standardized observation procedures, an interview, and questionnaires. Preliminary results on the different domains will be presented.
